    Post a screenshot of the router page where you configured OpenDNS, so that I see what you did.

    That’s fine. Now copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.

    NSLOOKUP -TYPE=TXT DEBUG.OPENDNS.COM

    Server: rns01.charter.com
    Address: 2607:f428:ffff:ffff::1

    opendns.com
    primary name server = auth1.opendns.com
    responsible mail addr = noc.opendns.com
    serial = 1571911927
    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)

    NSLOOKUP WHOAMI.AKAMAI.NET

    As can be clearly seen, you are using Charter‘s DNSv6 service, not OpenDNS. You must configure also IPv6 with DNS addresses from the following list:
    ::ffff:d043:dedc   ::ffff:d043:dcde   ::ffff:d043:dede   ::ffff:d043:dcdc

    I don't know where to put those entries. The categories listed for IPv6 on my router are:

     

    Delegated Prefix
    Lan IPv6 Address
    Wan IPv6 Address
    First IPv6 DNS Server
    Second IPv6 DNS Server

    As this is about DNS, you enter the addresses into the two DNS server fields, of course. What else?

    It didn't look right but I put the entries in.

    This looks fine. Does it filter now?

    Howewer, I see you prefer FamilyShield, so change it to
    ::ffff:d043:de7b    ::ffff:d043:dc7b

    It looks like it's working now. I had to restart the router for the changes to work. I'll change the DNS stuff and see if it still works.
