So today I've been messing around with a Netgear Nighthawk AC1750 because I wasn't able to get OpenDNS to work with a Linksys AC1750. The Nighthawk was having the same issue. When I checked 'ipconfig /all' it said the DNS IP was 192.168.1.1 and it wasn't blocking websites. I made sure my public IP was synced with OpenDNS and OpenDNS Server IPs were entered correctly. Was about to return Nighthawk but decided to try one more thing. I deleted my network from the OpenDNS Dashboard > Settings tab, then re-added it. After that, OpenDNS started working again. I checked 'ipconfig /all' and it still says my DNS IP is 192.168.1.1 but I think that's just how the new routers are setup. They're actually using whatever DNS IP you entered but it just doesn't say it on CMD prompt. So if anyone is having issues with OpenDNS not working with a new router, try deleting your network from the OpenDNS Dashboard > Settings tab, then re-adding it again.
