FYI, I have submitted a trouble ticket with OpenDNS for this issue as well.
System - HP Pavillion desktop running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1
Processor - Pentium Dual Core E6300 @ 2.8 GHz RAM - 3GB
Network details - various wired and wireless devices connect first to a Linksys (Cisco) E2000 router, then on to a CenturyLink 660 Series DSL modem.
I have followed various FAQs and Forum threads in an attempt to troubleshoot my issue which continues to be an IP mismatch. Specifically, when running the OpenDNS Updater utility, I get the following message:
"Your OpenDNS filtering settings might not work due to DNS IP Address (xx.xx.xxx.xxx) and HTTP IP address (something other than xx.xx.xxx.xxx) mismatch".
CenturyLink is a very difficult company to deal with and I am confident that if I have to actually have a dialogue with them about resolving these issues, they will be clueless and I will never get OpenDNS to work.
Here is what I have tried so far:
1.) The step by step process as outlined in the following (I had to go by several similar Linksys routers to take an educated guess at mine but the answers seem to be pretty consistent): https://store.opendns.com/setup/device/linksys_e1500
2.) Followed the advice that pertained to Linksys routers in this Forum thread: https://support.opendns.com/entries/21882330-OpenDNS-not-working
3.) Cleared the DNS cache: http://www.opendns.com/support/article/68
4.) Cleared my Firefox browser cache: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache
5.) Went back and input DNS3 info per Forum thread: https://support.opendns.com/entries/21882330-OpenDNS-not-working
6.) Changed DNS1 and DNS2 servers to match information contained on your main OpenDNS Store Web page: 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52
7.) So right now the DNS table in the Setup utility for my router looks like this:
DNS1 - 184.108.40.206
DNS2 - 220.127.116.11
DNS3 - 18.104.22.168
And it's just not working. Nothing is happening. Thankfully everything else but OpenDNS is still working, but that's not making me happy. I want to get this up and running, without having a dialogue with CenturyLink about an IP mismatch. Please tell me that there is another way, thanks.
