    In case your ISP provides you with dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) connectivity, you must also configure the IPv6 side with DNS server addresses from the following list:
     ::ffff:d043:dedc   ::ffff:d043:dcde   ::ffff:d043:dede   ::ffff:d043:dcdc

    Else I need more information.  Copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.222.220
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.
    netsh interface ipv4 show config

    Thanks! I think I configured the IPv6 side correctly?

     

    This is what can up following the diagnostic commands:

    C:\Users\David>nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.222.220
    Server: resolver3.opendns.com
    Address: 208.67.222.220

    opendns.com
    primary name server = auth1.opendns.com
    responsible mail addr = noc.opendns.com
    serial = 1560542932
    refresh = 16384 (4 hours 33 mins 4 secs)
    retry = 2048 (34 mins 8 secs)
    expire = 1048576 (12 days 3 hours 16 mins 16 secs)
    default TTL = 2560 (42 mins 40 secs)

    C:\Users\David>nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 208.67.222.220

    *** UnKnown can't find which.opendns.com.: No response from server

    C:\Users\David>nslookup whoami.akamai.net.
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 208.67.222.220

    *** UnKnown can't find whoami.akamai.net.: No response from server

    Forget about IPv6 - you have no IPv6 connectivity.

    Also, despite your configuration, your DNS queries do not reach OpenDNS.  Something prevents you from using 3rd party DNS services, be it your ISP, your router, or some software on your PC.  And the DNS service you're actually using doesn't look smart according to "No response from server".
