    Anyone have any suggestions on the following...have 2 PCs utilizing Verizon Wireless MiFi Hotspot to connect to internet. I need them to use OpenDNS for content filtering purposes. There is also a wireless printer attached to the MiFi.

    Does anyone have an recommendations as to how to setup PCs to utilize OpenDNS?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, is the internet connection itself a mobile broadband service? This can severely limit using OpenDNS at all. If you have your own public IP, neither NATted nor proxied, it will work, assuming Verizon doesn't require you use their DNS.

    Otherwise, just follow the usual instructions. https://store.opendns.com/setup/

    Yes, the connection is via a mobile broadband service...here is the hardware...http://www.verizonwireless.com/mifi-mobile-hotspot.shtml

    I guess I should contact VW, and see if they can help me point the DNS on the unit to OpenDNS servers...

    "I should contact VW, and see if they can help me point the DNS on the unit to OpenDNS servers"

    This is certainly not what they will do, because it will impact all users. Also, they would not see a need to do anything as they offer their own DNS service.

    I also checked your device manual: http://support.vzw.com/clc/devices/index.html?p=4726&m=

    I could not find a place to change DNS server settings. But if you want, you can provide us with a screen shot or text of the "Internet Status" page, the content of the device's so called "Config File" (if it's not too big), and the output of an "ipconfig /all" command from your PC. Then we may have further advices.
