    This isn't a downloaded program.

    Check them out. What you do is point your router to use them for DNS, you tell them what you IP address is, and you can setup settings, such as content filtering and such.
    Since the lookup for DNS is handed from your router to them, they handle what is returned. There are a lot of great features there besides those also.

    Plus you don't have to install anything else.

    Thanks for prompt reply. This looks very fascinating for me and more than appropriate but I have a problem in configuration. Please guide me where I am wrong...

    I have Dlink ADSL 502-T router which is configured for IP (as suggested) &
    My router has fixed IP from ISP i.e.
    I created my a/c RMC on and added network
    configured for blocked domain, adult sites etc.
    There are no requests diverted to opendns from my router and filtering does not work.

    Please help
    Thanks again

    Your router does not have the option to change just the DNS.
    You need DHCP enabled so you can continue to get Internet Access.

    Follow the instructions to set the DNS on your Computer Instead
    For XP
    For Vista
