    Hi All,

    We would like to update our current router configuration page and we need your help. If you have configured your router/device and the instructions are not currently listed on https://store.opendns.com/start/ and https://store.opendns.com/familyshield/setup/, or your firmware differs from what's listed, you can help other users configure their device by providing the following:

    • Router make, model and firmware version
    • instructions to setup OpenDNS on the router with screen shots
    • Router manufacture's instruction/ Users manual

    Please send to opendnsdevice@opendns.com

    Thank You.
    Thankful People: booper, krait

    Have you done a forum search? :wink:

    Seriously, you could find a lot of device brands or versions not accounted for by the OpenDNS setup instructions which have been addressed in the forum.

    I would also suggest including a list of routers which cannot be configured for whatever reason.

    But I'll have a look through my collection of router manuals and see what I can submit.

    P.S., I'd mark your post with a "thanks" if I could.

    The instructions for 2Wire routers is outdated. At least, on the new ATT U-verse routers, which use a completely different interface and arrangement. Haven't quite figured out how to implement OpenDNS on it yet.

    Should open a section for custom firmware like dd-wrt, I would imagine you have a huge user base that uses these.

    "At least, on the new ATT U-verse routers,"

    You never change the DNS on any UVerse routers or you will loose internet/IPTV/VOIP.

    If you can't configure the DNS in LAN/DHCP settings, then you have to do it manually at each device. (Both these options break local name resolution.)

    True, but if you are the sort of person flashing your router with alternative firmware, changing DNS settings should hardly be a challenge. But anyway,

    @maintenance Dec 21st 2011 : I have looked through the forums, thanks.

    >I would also suggest including a list of routers which cannot be configured for whatever reason.
    >>Good idea, and I will bring this up in our next internal meeting.

    We are looking into the issue with the "thanks" and you have some "thanks" from me.

    I would like help configuring an Apple Time Capsule router with the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion operating system and Airport Utility version 6.0.

    Opening Airport Utility brings up a graphic of the Time Capsule(TC) and the Internet icon. Clicking on the TC offers an Edit link, but in the Internet section both the Primary and Secondary DNS Server entry fields show the current DNS numbers greyed out, making an edit of same impossible here.
    Do I need to "Renew DHCP Lease" to change the DNS numbers in Airport Utility?

    I then looked in Apple Preferences>Internet>TCP/IP and found no way to see or change the DNS numbers.

    the instructions for using an airport router are out of date. My school uses OSX.7 and it looks nothing like your example.
