    Is it only that the Updater raises the message?  Can you surf the web else without problems?  If it's just the Updater, simply ignore the message.

    Else copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands here:

       nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.

       nslookup whoami.akamai.net.

       ipconfig /all             (works with Windows only)

    I have the same problem with the OpenDNS Updater v2.2.1 where the IP Address is empty and there is a message that reads "Looks like there's no internet connectivity."

    I discovered that the problem is caused by a VPN connection that I have with my work. When I disconnect from my VPN, the OpenDNS Updater v2.2.1 display's my correct public IP Address and the "Looks like there's no internet connectivity." message goes away. The VPN client that I am using is Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Version 4.9.00086.

    FYI - These are the nslookup results I get:

    When connected to my VPN:

    nslookup myip.opendns.com
    Server: server.myworkdomain.de
    Address: 192.168.1.100
    Name: myip.opendns.com 

    When NOT connected to my VPN:

    nslookup myip.opendns.com
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 10.10.6.1
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: myip.opendns.com
    Address: 64.1.39.17

    Notice that when I am connected to the VPN, a Public IP Address is not defined. This is probably the reason why I get the "Looks like there's no internet connectivity." message.

    I suppose the only workaround at this point is that I will have to remember to periodically click the "Update now" button (on the OpenDNS Updater interface) when I am not connected to my VPN.
