    My first question would be: What is the error? Can't get anywhere without it.

    I have no idea what the error is. DNS o matic sends me an error email and i log into DNS o matic it says Error in red. Then i log into OpenDNS and it just says my network is inactive. I have no Idea what the issue is. I am using the DNS automatic updater and everything

    the emails always say 

    "OpenDNS response for 'Home-Main':
    --------------------
    !yours
    --------------------

    Re DNS-O-Matic: Why do you use DNS-O-Matic at all? Why don't you update OpenDNS directly?
    If you have good reasons to use DNS-O-Matic, what Updater do you use?

    Re OpenDNS: !yours means your current IP address is registered with another OpenDNS network, so it is "not yours".
    Because of "inactive" see this thread: https://support.opendns.com/entries/22211690-one-of-my-networks-shows-inactive-on-my-Dashboard

    I think you should open a support ticket to get this clarified, i.e. whom this IP address really belongs to.

    Yes, that would be the error. Do as rotblitz advises.

    I have a Dynamic Ip address so it changes frequently. I have went to support and i have not received an answer yet

    If you have not received even an immediate autoresponse, then you should check your email junk/spam at every possible location it can collect: junk folders in your email client, in your webmail interface if your provider has webmail, etc.

     

    Further,  consider and respond to the other parts which rotblitz posted if you want to continue discussing it here.

    Finally, if you are in a hurry, try this:

    1. Make note of the current network IP shown as !yours.

    2. Once your IP changes (you can likely force this by rebooting the router), try a manual update at your Dashboard.

    If you still get !yours, it may be that OpenDNS has all the dynamic IPs for your provider reserved for one of several reasons.
