Can't get OpenDNS to work on home network

    It could be that your ISP redirects your DNS queries to their own DNS service, so any alternative DNS configuration cannot take effect.  Check it with:

    nslookup -type=txt

    If this returns "I am not an OpenDNS resolver", then your ISP redirects your DNS queries.

    "My IP addresses match on the dashboard...  I've put the updater on a computer that doesn't get turned off."

    These things are totally useless as long as you don't use OpenDNS at all.  These are secondary steps.
