Network Routers and Modems
Configuring OpenDNS on routers and modems ensures that all computers and devices that connect to that router or modem use OpenDNS and the subsequent Web content filtering and security settings. This is recommended as the best-practice configuration to use for networks that do not have an internal DNS server.
A router manages the incoming and outgoing traffic of a public IP address, which defines a unique network to OpenDNS and to the Internet. Network routers, including WiFi routers and modems with integrated routers, are the easiest and best place to configure OpenDNS as the DNS server for a network.
One or more computers and/or devices may be connected to a network to access the Internet and other resources. OpenDNS settings are applied to a network and those settings are inherited by all of the computers and devices that connect to that network.
