Ok, my older brother apparently did something to make my parents install/add a parental blocker called "OpenDNS". I have no problem with my parents having a blocking system if it is only used to block things that are bad, however, they went overboard on it (or the blocker came preinstalled like this) and it seems to have blocked nearly every major website (Youtube, Facebook, ect.). I tried Google searching a way to bypass it, but no solutions (that work, that is) came up. I'm just wondering if anyone knows how exactly you can bypass it?

Open Network Connections, Open TCP/IP Properties, Select "Use the following DNS Server Addresses" and type in a different DNS server.

How about... You explain to your parents why having some sites (e.g. Facebook,, Youtube) is ok? Maybe that way, if you open a dialogue, you'll be able to come to a compromise all parties are happy with. Else, you're just going to be sneaking around, lying about doing it, and the eventual backlash when - not if - they find out will be even more severe as a result.

At the very least, you might be able to understand why your parents think it necessary to block these sites from you.

Right, about that. I don't know of any DNS Servers. The Google Public Servers don't work for me.

Sorry for the double post, but my parents are strange. They are very strict with some things, and then other things, not so much. They are strict with what websites we use, but they don't care much about lying. Sure, they will scold us about lying to them, but they will never ground us.

Ha my parents are divorced. My mom is the bible beater, and had the program called Spectre or Spector installed. It was worse than yours as I didn't even know it was there for a few months since it shows no sign in the tray or task manager. On the flip side my dad doesn't give a shit and he lets me stay up late, play whatever games, and do pretty much anything. I am 17 now and just learned to deal with it till I turn 18 and move out, and you should remember your parents are always right even if it seems arbitrary. You should try to talk to them, and then if they say no leave it at that.

OR: depending on your internet connection like ATT for instance in their routers they send you they have the ability to disable automatically finding a DNS, and they will give you a new one every time. Just be aware that it can possibly cause your internet to crash a lot, as mine would shut down a lot when I used something too intensive like games or streaming until I rechecked that option

Didn't work. The website is blocked.

That didn't work either. I can't find any public DNS servers other than the Google ones, and they don't work for me for some reason.

I honestly can't figure out anyway to bypass it. I'm kind of starting to get pissed now, especially since it seems to have blocked every anonymizer and anonymizer program (it even blocked TOR). Does anyone have any solutions? Any at all?

I still think you should do this.

I actually tried that yesterday, and my father just shrugged his shoulders and basically told me that since him and my mom work alot they don't have time to monitor every site that I go on, and they also don't have time to create a website whitelist (that isn't true, they have time, they just won't) so everything is remaining blocked. I am somewhat suprised that these forums didn't get blocked, because 95% of the forums I used to go on are now blocked by the filter. It seems that they have set up a setting on the OpenDNS or something that doesn't allow me to change what DNS server I use, so that option is now out of the picture.

I feel youI feel your pain... my parents have installed Norton family protect or whatever its called... but it is no way as strict as yours! My dad actually took the time to whitelist reasonable sites.

I'm a duck who doesn't afraid of anything.

Right, about that. I don't know of any DNS Servers. The Google Public Servers don't work for me.
You sure you're not typing in something like dns.google.com for some reason? If you didn't (and you shouldn't), are you sure you tried both 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4? If you happen to have IPv6 support (this site will tell you if you do or not), then it's 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844.

Yes, I have indeed punched that in. Neither of them work. My parents found a way to block me from changing what DNS server I use.

If I buy my own computer I will still have to use my parents' internet. The blocker is installled into the internet modem, not the computer.

If it's in the modem's firmware, you could attempt to flash the firmware or if possible (this one may vary from model to model), restore to factory settings. Google should help you out with this one. If it's passworded (which it might), then I'm out of ideas.
