    It seems you didn't read any of my comments above, else you would understand that you ask for help at the wrong place.  This is Netgear's issue, not OpenDNS'.

    You can still search for help at community.netgear.com where the Netgear router nerds are.

    You would have to visit https://www.netgear.com/support/ to find it out.

    I visited the support site, but nothing there that is helpful for my issue. I uninstalled Genie and reinstalled the Genie file that I down load in 2016. Now it give me the a different error message below:

    Checking router firmware

    We're making sure you have firmware that supports Live Parental Controls.

    You don't appear to be connected to the Internet. Please connect to the Internet through you NETGEAR router and try again.

    I'm connected to the internet through NETGEAR rounter.  Please help!

    See here: https://www.netgear.com/support/product/R7500v2#download

    Else open a support ticket, "Submit a request" above.

    I tried a few older firmware, but I got the same message saying that "My firmware doesn't support Live Parental Controls." I can't submit a request because my router is not qualify for support anymore. :(

    The firmware is for the Netgear router, not for Android or Windows.  Or did you talk about the Genie software?  Regardless, this here is the OpenDNS forum, not the Netgear Support forum.  Follow the links I posted above.  OpenDNS neither provides Netgear firmware nor Genie.

    I read your comments and only you pointed me to other links with good resolved comments, but I have no luck so far. Netgear doesn't help me because I bought the Router over a year ago and I can't request for support from them. I really regret buying this router from them. My next router will not be Netgear or any other Netgear products. thanks for you responds.
