    I was recently getting errors about on chrome it saying 'no internet', then after some time the web page would show ok.
    After this switch, it has not yet done that again, does that make sense to you? I think it was using google DNS servers.

    well it just came, the message is 'internet disconnected', so maybe my verizon fios router has an issue? Or the fios network?
    It is a very transitory thing.

    :)

  2. Windows Ten Family Overriding OpenDNS?

    Dear Joy,

    I have added the domains you provided to my white list as you suggested. Just to be clear, I am assuming that you intended for me to add those to my OpenDNS white list. Is that correct? Or do you mean that I should add those domains to the individual
    white lists of the children in my Microsoft Family account?

    Sincerely,

    Benjamin

    Switching your IP to OpenDNS. Best move I ever made, pros and cons inside.

    I did try DNSCrypt, it felt like things were a tad slower then compared to just OpenDNS, OpenDNS is very snappy for me for some off reason I can tell a noticeable difference in load times, very cool. *Toast :toast:
