    Ok, I completely unplugged the router instead of just turning it off, and plugged in my laptop directly to the router and now it's working, could there be an issue with the router already? I've had it less than a year.

    You do not need to use http://routerlogin.net/, but you can use http://192.168.1.1/ instead too. Internal name resolution may be broken due to your computer configuration, so using the IP address instead should help.

    "after resetting my router, not only can I STILL not log into the router I now have NO parental controls. "

    If you did a reset to factory defaults, you indeed do not have Live Parental Controls anymore.  LPC are not part of the factory defaults.  You have to re-enable them then.

    "could there be an issue with the router already?"

    Likely not with the router, but with the user operating it... ;-)

    Using the IP addresses to log in didn't work either, the only thing that worked was completely unplugging everything and starting over. It seems I got my parental controls back after redownloading stuff I already had..., however now they're all mixed up. For example, my bypass account is shutting me off at 9pm while I'm supposed to have no restrictions, and the default schedule(which is mainly for the kids since I can't put bypasses on their Kindles) was on workstation schedule (which is the family computer for the kids to do research and has few restrictions even in the evening) when it was supposed to restrict at 7, and the actual workstation schedule, well, I have no idea. I had to reset the workstation schedule to act like the default schedule and I have nothing set to cut off at 9, only at 7 so I don't even know where THAT is coming from. All this because they couldn't log onto Xbox live a few days ago, and we never had that problem at all until the other day, which is why I started trying to tweak the DNS in the first place. It was literally just an out-of-the-blue issue. and that specific issue SEEMED to be fixed until last night, when they again couldn't log on. Has there been some updates made and I'm just unaware of them? I can probably just add a bypass to the Xbox if that's the case and nothing actually wrong with the router, but now I have to sort this other issue first. It went from just no Xbox live to NOTHING works right. Can I just reset all my parental controls and start over fresh? I found that option the other day but didn't think I needed it and now I can't find it again to try it.  Why are all my controls going whacky and how can I fix it?

    Side note: when I got my parental controls "back", I didn't need to reconfigure anything, like I didn't redo anything or anything...they were just "back" and seemingly normal again after I redownloaded the stuff I already had until the evening when I discovered they had decided to switch roles.

    Update: I just got done deleting all accounts, uninstalling all apps, re-adding all accounts and reinstalling all apps to all applicable devices...and once again everything  seems to be working properly, however I suppose I won't know for sure until this evening when it's time for scheduled content blocking. Now the burning question as I assume this issue will most likely arise again if none of the others do, what is the deal with the Xbox live? It has always been possible to go on the Xbox live with or without the content blocking on before, as we always have had the same content blocking schedule and occasionally are on Xbox live way beyond that schedule. So what changed recently and how can I bypass it so we can still use Xbox live in the evening?

    You cannot exempt the Xbox from your OpenDNS settings if using Netgear LPC.  It is supposed to work this way.
