    Hey guys,

    I've been playing around wanting a bit more control over a few of my kids access to various websites. Kids will be kids, I wanted to just cut out the severe stuff. So I turned the filter on low, and then turned off Porn.

    I set my static ip address, and then changed my DNS to OpenDNS server's. 1 day later I could no longer open CNN.com and SANDICOR.com as well as a host of ther websites.

    I tried whitelisting, and making them safe pages and It still doesn't work.

    I flushed the DNS, deleted the ARP Cache, rebooted, rebooted the router, verified that the DNS servers were correctly pointed and that I had no THRID Or proxy servers.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks so much!

    (THIS happens to ALL computers on the network, and when I directly connected bypassing the router it also happened, so I'm led to belive its a problem outside our network)

    Any super cool ideas to try? Thanks!
    JD

    Yes, I have some ideas, but would need to see the output of the following commands:
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    nslookup www.cnn.com.
    nslookup www.sandicor.com.
    tracert www.cnn.com
    tracert www.sandicor.com

    Also, what is your geographical location?

    "I tried whitelisting, and making them safe pages and It still doesn't work."

    What's not blocked, doesn't need whitelisting. You can safely remove that.
