Can't get OpenDNS to work on home network

Not open for further replies.

I'm trying to set up OpenDNS on my home network for web filtering. I've followed the directions here but I must have done something wrong along the way because it's not working. I'm really not at all familiar with IP Addresses and DNS etc. but as far as I know, in my router settings I changed my DNS to point to OpenDNS:

However, neither the test site InternetBadGuys.com, nor a dummy domain that I manually and specifically added to the block list, are actually being blocked.

Any help would be appreciated
