How can I get specific details of which computer/device tried access which site?

    OpenDNS can see only your public IP address from you, as should be. (You wouldn't be happy if any external site/service/hacker/whatever would be able to see into your LAN, would you?) And OpenDNS sees only your DNS lookups (i.e. queried domain names) out of your network, not your web traffic. DNS is the phone book of the internet, not the phone lines.

    Regarding your changing internal IP addresses, this is because you have a dynamic DHCP controlled scheme set up by default for your network. You could use the MAC addresses (these do not change) instead of the IP addresses to identify a certain device.

    If this is not an option, you'll assign a static internal IP address for every device, a unique IP address outside the DHCP range of your router, but within the IP address range of your LAN. This is a bit more maintenance effort than a dynamic DHCP controlled IP address scheme though.
