Hi, I'm a new user of OpenDNS, someone trying to filter 'themselves' on a single computer, which I've managed to set up and it all was working fine until I reset my modem/router and my ip changed. so I looked into it and found that I needed to download the OpenDNS Updater software to automatically pass my filters on to my new ip everytime it resets. I set that up and it works...
BUT when I reset the router to test it, it takes minutes until it starts filtering sites again after the internet comes online.. meaning I can visit all filtered sites for around 3 minutes or so until it comes up with the OpenDNS block page, which is not okay for me as it means I can reset the router/modem whenever and access something I want blocked.
Id be very surprised if this is just how it is because that would be a pretty big flaw, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this and help me out.
my OpenDNS Updater settings are:
[no] Send Dns-O-Matic updates
[yes] Run hidden
[no] Don't notify me about errors
[no] Disable sending IP updates
I don't know if that helps. I'm not a massive tech guy so any help greatly appreciated if you could explain fairly simply how I can solve this issue and have my filters up absolutely all the time
