    To use OpenDNS, you had to purchase Umbrella (because you're not a home user), and you would block the P2P/File Sharing category.

    However, OpenDNS can block only domains, i.e. traffic where DNS is needed. It does not become aware of pure IP to IP (e.g. most P2P) traffic For this pupose is software available out there (which you cannot use if you are not the owner of the end devices), and also some routers may be able to block it while blocking ports or protocols or enabling QoS..

    Regarding IDM, this is just a download accelerator and cannot be used to circumvent any restrictions. So no worries.

    "how can i block these through my router... by the way my router is tp link r402m."

    You got the wrong forum for this question. Here are the OpenDNS experts, the TP-Link router experts are somewhere else. Or try an internet search which will lead you to things like http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1763792

    Have you tried setting up QoS to try to de-prioritize downloads and prioritize online games and other lag-sensitive tasks?
