CLOSED: Router Parental Controls Dynamic DNS

Postby hemington1 » Thu Apr 09, 2015 8:17 pm

I have purchased a Netgear Nighthawk router. It has the option to configure Live Parental Controls via a Netgear Dynamic DNS within the router settings.
Is there a way to configure this to use the HDA DNS, or is it better to leave this feature well alone?

Not sure how compatible it would be with the HDA DNS. By default, the HDA uses OpenDNS which also has parental controls you can manage via their web site.

I personally would not use that feature on the router. If you desire to implement controls, use OpenDNS.

Thanks Bigfoot.
I have configured Live Parental Controls with my HDA Open DNS account. Netgear uses open DNS.

Cool. I presume this topic is closed then.
