    I think you did not need to enable OpenDNS in the router‘s web admin. LPC and OpenDNS are incompatible services.

    That seems to have done it.  Thanks!  Why would they put that very misleading setting in there?

    No, not misleading. As I said: you can use either LPC (Live Parental Controls - what you call "enabled OpenDNS in the router's webmin") or OpenDNS/Umbrella, never both at the same time.  The reason is that your DNS queries go to the same destination, but the dashboards are different.  Results will be random and inconsistent if using both services in parallel.
