    These are the main differences between LPC and Home Basic:

    • The LPC dashboard is at whereas the "normal" dashboard is at
    • LPC does not come with stats and logs, but OpenDNS Home Basic does.
    • LPC settings are associated with your Netgear router device ID, whereas OpenDNS Home Basic settings are associated with your public IP address.  That said, you'll have to run an Updater with Home Basic, not so with LPC.
    • With LPC you can configure separate settings by Windows and Mac OSX user ID (bypass accounts), whereas Home Basic has only one configuration set.
    • LPC supports scheduled content filtering.  This is not supported by Home Basic.
