    OpenDNS Updater reports different IP to the one shown on the OpenDNS Website and it says that I am using OpenDNS when I know I can't be as the router supplied by my ISP (BT), a Home Hub 3 cannot be configured to use OpenDNS's DNS settings. I am currently awaiting a new router to replace the one supplied by BT and I shall then be able to use OpenDNS, but I'm wondering what is going on in the meantime? I have tried flushing the DNS cache, but it hasn't made any difference.

    Click "DNS and HTTP IP Address Mismatch (Content Filtering Not Working)"

    Your web IP address: http://myip.dnsomatic.com/
    Your DNS IP address: nslookup myip.opendns.com.

    It is your DNS IP address which is to be registered to make blocking, filtering and stats work.

    If you are using OpenDNS, perhaps you have configured it on your computer. Whatever DNS is configured on your computer trumps whatever DNS is configured on your router (unless the router explicitly blocks any other DNS). So it is perfectly conceivable that you may be using OpenDNS even if your router is not configured for it.

    Thanks but it's OK now; I have got my new router and successfully configured it to use OpenDNS (I had to reinstall the updater program though as that wasn't working properly). Now I just need to figure whether I can configure my TP-Link TL-1043ND to prevent computers on the network overriding the router settings. I think it can be done with dd-wrt firmware, but I haven't plucked up courage to try that yet.
