    At an absolute minimum we would need to know the domain name of the site you are talking about. It would also be helpful to know which webpage said "it was successful".

    The problems could range from OpenDNS not being properly configured on the account level, whatever device you are using is not properly configured on that device or is not accessing OpenDNS at all, or it could be that the domain is not categorized yet or not categorized properly. But we can't tell anything for sure without some details beyond "it doesn't work, fix it"

    Your problem seems to be: "when I type in an adult siie it still go through".

    Well, I may be able to narrow down what your problem is if you can post the complete plain text outputs of the following diagnostic commands here:

       nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.

       nslookup www.exampleadultsite.com.

    Also, as you post under "Netgear Live Parental Controls", do you indeed use a Netgear router with Live Parental Controls enabled?  Or was selecting this forum section just a mistake?
