I am trying to set up a second router (Netgear WNR3500L) with OpenDNS to protect my boys' wireless devices (iPod, etc...) while still using our primary router (SURFboard SBG6580 connected to our TWC cable box) for my wife and I. However, I am still able to get through to sites, such as playboy.com, even after setting up OpenDNS. What am I doing incorrectly?
I have the Netgear router connected via Ethernet to the SURFboard router. The general settings for the Netgear router are:
Internet IP Address: Get dynamically from ISP
Primary DNS: 22.214.171.124
Secondary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Router MAC Address: Use Default
The computer that I am currently using to set up the routers is running Ubuntu 10.04 (if that matters).
The results of running "nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com":
debug.opendns.com text = "server 1.ash"
debug.opendns.com text = "flags 20 0 2f6 0"
debug.opendns.com text = "id 16293994"
debug.opendns.com text = "source 188.8.131.52:32834"
Authoritative answers can be found from:
The results of running "nslookup www.playboy.com":
www.playboy.com canonical name = playboy.com.
- When I navigate to "http://www.opendns.com/welcome/" I get a success message.
- The OpenDNS Dashboard shows that my current IP address and the IP address for my selected network match.
- Within the OpenDNS Dashboard I have the Filtering Level set to "None" because I want to be able to use the built-in "Netgear Live Parental Controls" settings of my Netgear router which the Dashboard links me to at http://netgear.opendns.com.
- My Netgear firmware is showing as being up to date (V184.108.40.206_35.0.55NA)
