Ok. Please excuse the ignorance. but I haven't played with my home network in a long time. I'm setting up a Netgear MK83 or MK80 to use OpenDNS. what I've done so far. I changed the DNS numbers on the router to the OpenDNS numbers. Registered with OpenDNS and added my network with the IP detected by OpenDNS. I went to the router settings / Advanced set up / Dynamic DNS and selected use Dynamic DNS service. ater creating an account with NoIP.com and entered my login info. clicked status and got a good response. ( updated successfully at 12:45AM,08/02/2021) user name and *** just in case... LOL and that is how far I got.... what I'm I supposed to do after ? so that OpenDNS gets my new IP if and when it changes. or is that alll I need. to do?
Edit to update. So noIP.com had me change my IP in my noIP account to 184.108.40.206 and restart my router. to verify that the IP would get updated. well. it didn't. what am I missing?
