Everything used to be working, but I changed my routers... previously, I had changed the DNS setting on the router to use OpenDNS, and the Google NEST mesh wifi was set to pick up DNS from the router.... now I had to had to change as the router died... I am using Rogers in Canada for my ISP and I now have the Ignite 2 router, which does not allow you to change DNS settings.... So, I changed the Google nest router to use Open DNS both for IPv4 and 6.
Setup Looks like this:
ISP->Rogers Ignite 2 router (using default DNS)->Google Nest Mesh Wifi (using Open DNS)->Clients
The issue is that I seem to be getting sporadic filtering going on.... I'm not sure if this is because the machine that has the OpenDNS Updater agent isn't running all the time?
I first set up OpenDNS on the nest wifi system and it didn't work until a reboot of each point and the router... Then it was working fine - for about a week... Then it stopped filtering...
I want to confirm something here - to keep filtering working, does the updater agent need to be run on a regular basis?
