parent control not working recnetly

Hello,

parent control in my router worked  all the time till a couple of days ago.

nothing is chagned for the device except I changed from netgear modem to xfinity cable modem recently. I am not sure if it is related or not.

I checked the DNS servers are correct:

208.67.222.123
208.67.220.123

 

the parent control in opendns login is set as Moderate which blocked all adult websites

 

Any suggestions to fix the problem?

Which sort of parental controls? (There are three, at least, that I know of.) The freebie?

 

It is on its way out. Recent firmware updates have already removed this feature from several routers and apps. More may be on the way.

 

Netgear has just announced that it is killing the free Live Parental Controls. So don't get to rely on it.

Something as old as the WNDR3700 range, first launched in 2010, may not get new firmware, but that won't save it from the shutdown.

 

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.
