    Can you post a screen shot of the router page where you configured OpenDNS.  In case you have IPv6 connectivity, also a screen shot from the IPv6 configuration page.

    IP address pixilated for privacy. Thanks for any input you may have. IPv6 blank.

    This looks fine.   Now copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.220.220
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.
    netsh interface ipv4 show config

    Your problem has nothing to do with your router.

    It looks like as if your ISP Charter redirects your DNS traffic to their own DNS service.  You may want to contact them to ask for opting out from this DNS traffic redirection.  Else you can try to circumvent this restriction with using https://dnscrypt.info/implementations/

    You were correct. I called up my ISP and they told me that they were having some dns problems a while ago and they had to create a custom script. They forgot to remove it. They removed it now, and now everything in OpenDNS works.

    Much thanks.
