    It looks like that you're using Netgear LPC and OpenDNS Home at the same time.  This isn't going to work, because these services are incompatible.  You can use either the one or the other.

    rotblitz - 

    Thanks for response, I'll check it out. But it does seem that it is OpenDNS that is rejecting it, not Netgear LPC. The html message comes from block.opendns.com:
    https://block.opendns.com/main?url=888888156766848481838015688078&ablock&server=pao16&prefs=&tagging=&nref

    Your concern is irrelevant.  The block page is the same for all, OpenDNS, Umbrella and Netgear LPC, but each of these three services uses a different dashboard and different dashboard settings.  Therefore they are incompatible.  Again, you can use only one of them in a network at any time.  Else you will get unreliable and inconsistent results.

    OpenDNS dashboard:     https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/
    Umbrella dashboard:       https://dashboard.umbrella.com/
    Netgear LPC dashboard: https://netgear.opendns.com/

    Where do you "had explicitly excluded "Weapons" from categories to block"?

    See here the block page for Netgear LPC: https://kb.netgear.com/25687/   (Step 18)
    It is clearly the OpenDNS block page too.

    RotBlitz - You are 100% correct! I signed up with OpenDNS long before I got a NetGear router. I went to my OpenDNS account to verify my settings, but now that I tried NetGear LPC dashboard it brought up OpenDNS also but I found different filter settings and Weapons was indeed blocked.
    Thanks you for your follow up - you have solved my prob.

    you have to use some VPN software in order to unblock bass pro website, it looks like you are using Netgear lpc and open DNS that is rejecting it.
