    I have a cisco router and two vlans that are associated with two SSIDs, one is my personal and the other is my guest network. I am attempting to setup OpenDNS on the guest network. The problem is I setup the update tool on my personal LAN as there is no computers that stay on the guest network.

    I am fairly knowledgeable on this and I am confused how this is not really working. The dynamic tool only needs to send updates to the OpenDNS server's my ever changing IP, but it is does not seem to be sending my IP to the servers.

    Is there other requirement such as having the OpenDNS servers' on the same machine that is sending the IPs?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    No, that wouldn't be a requirement.

    What is showing you that your IP isn't updated to your Dashboard? What do you see at your Dashboard or from the updater? Any errors? #3

    You originally added the Network at your Dashboard, yes?

    "I setup the update tool on my personal LAN"

    But this has the same public IP as the guest network, right? If not, then no, you can't update one public IP from another.

    If you are using the OpenDNS Updater to update OpenDNS directly, make sure the "Use DNSOMatic" check box is empty.

    Post the output of this command:
    nslookup -type=txt

    edit: typo
