Instead of OpenDNS' Dynamic DNS Client utilize the Dynamic DNS Built into My Router

    This will never happen for security reasons.  You cannot prove that the IP address of e.g. is your IP address.  You (or somebody else) would be able to register another household's IP address instead this way.  Therefore updates must come from the IP address which is going to be registered to prove that it is really your IP address.

    And yes, a router or another DDNS client (on a DVR, NAS, IP camera, etc., or a software on a computer) can update OpenDNS, given that it supports at least one of OpenDNS, DNS-O-Matic or "custom / user defined".  It does not need to "natively" support OpenDNS.  Also, many routers can be flashed with alternative firmware which is almost able to update also OpenDNS, some firmwares even natively.
