    Hoping someone can help me set this up. I am exhausted with kids choosing to play XBOX, PS2 on my internet when they are not supposed to or on their phones surfing.

    I have a sprint 3G aircard and locked into contract so cant change service or routers yet.

    Could someone walk me through this?

    "a sprint 3G aircard"

    Mobile ISP's often do not assign public IP addresses, but private ones. If you got a private (RFC-1918) IP address assigned, you're out of luck using the enhanced features of OpenDNS like filtering/blocking and stats. You can at most use the pre-defined filtering of FamilyShield.

    That said, the first question would not be to ask how to configure your router, but what kind of IP address you got assigned.

    As next you need to ensure that you can use OpenDNS at all:
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com. 208.67.222.222

    Only if you verified that you got a publicly routable IP address and that you can indeed use OpenDNS, then you follow the normal instructions:
