    Just in case you don't know, if you use the FamilyShield IP addresses 208.67.*.123, you don't need an account and dashboard settings at all. These have pre-defined content filtering already.

    When you say "the opendns services don't work on yet", does this mean you get "Oops!" at the test page http://welcome.opendns.com/ ?
    If so, post the complete plain text output of the following command here:
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com. 208.67.220.220

    yes Mr. rotblitz
    at first I was using FamilyShield the i changed it to Basic openDNS 208.67.222.222
    and 208.67.220.220 but also it didn't work , and as you said I get "Oops!" at the test page.
    by the way , what do you mean by " post the complete plain text output of the following command here:
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com. 208.67.220.220"
    how can this help my issue ?

    This can help to identify your issue.

    In case of Windows: You open a command prompt window: Start > Run > cmd
    Then you enter (or copy & paste) the command above, exactly as you see it.
    Then you right-click the commmand prompt window, mark all, right-click again, and paste it here.

    marwan,

    You need to clear your dns cache.

    try the following:

    1. reboot your computer
    2. Open a web browser
    3. visit: www.opendns.com/welcome

    you should now see the Welcome to openDNS message!

    "You need to clear your dns cache."

    Nice guessing, need to be proved...
    My guessing was that his ISP redirects his lookups to their own DNS service...

    “visit: www.opendns.com/welcome”

    Wrong. Visit http://welcome.opendns.com and it will redirect you to the one you listed if and only if you are using OpenDNS.

    If you go straight to www.opendns.com/welcome it will always tell you that you are using OpenDNS regardless of whether you actually are.
