    Oops!

    You aren't using OpenDNS yet. Let's fix that

    If you haven't restarted your computer yet, please do that now

    Now you know why the Updater draws the error message. Post a screen shot of the place where you configured the OpenDNS resolver addresses.

    Hi, I have the same problems. I add an screenshot, so you can see it. When I do the test you said before, the webpage shows that I am using OpenDNS, but the web filter I customized is not working well...

    "When I do the test you said before, the webpage shows that I am using OpenDNS"

    Then you do not have the same problem, and I will not help you here.  Cross-Help doesn't make sense.  You may still follow the discussion to see if something helps you.

    I thought I did, did you mean a screen shot like this?

    Not this screen shot, but one from the page where you have configured the OpenDNS addresses 208.67.222.222 etc.

    Thanks, this looks good. 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.

    Oh, I forgot to add the nslookup.

    This report contains those.

    “Only OpenDNS employees have access to this information”

    Can you please do what I ask for. Else I have no way to help.

    Don’t you understand this? Sorry, then I’m out here, no way to help. Good luck!

    I have the same problem with the OpenDNS Updater v2.2.1 where the IP Address is empty and there is a message that reads "Looks like there's no internet connectivity."

    I discovered that the problem is caused by a VPN connection that I have with my work. When I disconnect from my VPN, the OpenDNS Updater v2.2.1 display's my correct public IP Address and the "Looks like there's no internet connectivity." message goes away. The VPN client that I am using is Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Version 4.9.00086.

    FYI - These are the nslookup results I get:

    When connected to my VPN:

    nslookup myip.opendns.com
    Server: server.myworkdomain.de
    Address: 192.168.1.100
    Name: myip.opendns.com 

    When NOT connected to my VPN:

    nslookup myip.opendns.com
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 10.10.6.1
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: myip.opendns.com
    Address: 64.1.39.17

    Notice that when I am connected to the VPN, a Public IP Address is not defined. This is probably the reason why I get the "Looks like there's no internet connectivity." message.

    I suppose the only workaround at this point is that I will have to remember to periodically click the "Update now" button (on the OpenDNS Updater interface) when I am not connected to my VPN.

    Yes, this is what I asked for. Now post the complete command output of:
    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.222.222

    Good, now it’s clear. Your router does not do what you have configured. You may refer to your router supplier, or try with another firmware version.

    Hong Kong is the correct location...

    I wasn’t interested in your location. It doesn’t have to do with your problem. The command was to see if you can reach OpenDNS. My job is done, your problem is with your router.
