I was a long time AT&T DSL customer. I have a linksys router and have been using OpenDNS for a long time to filter out the content that I do not want my kids to get to. Since I switched to Comcast, the OpenDNS filters do not work because the DNS server address of 18.104.22.168 is has found its way into my home network. How can I disable this and use OpenDNS servers only?

Have been using Open DNS for years. The only DNS servers entries in my Linksys router are those of OpenDNS (22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199) but when I look at the Network connection properties on my laptop it shows a third server 188.8.131.52. Where is my computer puling this from? How do i stop it? I am quite sure that this DNS server is allowing requests for content that that would normally be filtered by OpenDNS to get into my home. How do I stop it?

It sounds like the router is passing along the DNS IP it gets from Comcast using DHCP, in addition to the ones you've configured manually. I don't know if there's a way to stop it from doing this. So instead, I suggest you configure the DNS manually on your PC, pointing it to the OpenDNS servers.
