Parental Controls Error on some machines


Parental Controls Error on some machines

I have several computers hooked up to my Nighthawk R6700 router and have had parental controls enabled which uses the open dns.  This has been working well for some time but a few weeks ago a couple computers could no longers use their skype.  We also noticed those same computers cannot acces gmail or yahoo mail ect. 


I thought at first it was just HTTPS sites but it can access some sites, just not all.  I get a security certificate error.  If I disable parental controls those few machines work fine.


This did not affect everyone on the router, just a few of the machines.  Open DNS said this is an issue with the router firmware.  I've got the most recent firmware installed.


Anyone else having a problem like this?

Did you reset the router by pressing in the reset button on the back of the router for about 10 seconds until the power light turned orange and started to blink?
