Why did the IP address of the network I'm managing change to the IP of the system I logged in from? [picture attached]

    This is because most likely you have installed and running an Updater on a roaming device which goes outside your home network.  Not a good idea!  The Updater will take any believable IP address of networks you are connected to to update your OpenDNS dashboard with it, so that the settings are no longer applied for your home network.

    An Updater must be running on a device only within your home network.  This can be a built-in DDNS update client on a device like a router, NAS, DVR, IP camera, etc. or a software on a computer.  The IP address information cannot be managed from outside your home network.  All other dashboard settings can be managed from remote.

    Hi Rob, you were right.  I had installed the Updater and it was getting confused.  Thanks!
