    The setting you are asking about has nothing to do with OpenDNS. The only reason it's displayed is to show the DNS settings and OK button in a single image. OpenDNS is most definltely not taking over firewall functionality from router vendors.

    If you want to find out more about that setting you'll need to read the manual for your router or visit an Actiontec support forum.

    The only way I could install OpenDNS was to uncheck the Internet Connection Firewall checkbox. So is it safe to have the Internet Connection Firewall turned off on my router? Thanks.

    It might have been helpful if you'd told us that OpenDNS wouldn't work unless that box was unchecked. That said, I have no idea what the checkbox controls, so I have no idea if it's "safe" or not. Since this is a user forum, it's entirely possible that none of the users reading things here will know. Your best bet is still to either check the manual or go to an Actiontec forum to find out what that checkbox actually controls and does.
