I think this has been happening to other openDNS users, guess I should have checked here before falling for this trick by Comcast/xFinity.
Everything has been working great on our home LAN for years, openDNS has been our only dns and we also used the app on reach system.
Last month xFinity sent us a letter saying that they had great news, for free they would send out a newer technology device that not only increased our Internet speed but also gave us wifi and LAN from the same device.
Once it arrived I had to use my smart phone to login and change the devices addresses with Comcast.
Then we were told we had to return our existing device, which worked great and had more indicators/lights.
So...Now we're stuck with this garbage device they sent that not only has horrible wifi but also has no user controls for changing the DNS!
We can't use openDNS, and just using it per system does not fit our home needs.
Don't fall for this. The device they are sending out is garbage.
