I switched to Open DNS as KP Media suggested- phenomenal speed jump 5 mps to 30 on charter!

But smart phones, pads and TV will not hook up.

Connection is there, but no internet, what am I missing?

Computers are wireless devices generally use a default of whatever the router has set. You can easily change a computer to use a different DNS, but wireless devices (smart phones, iPads, video games, etc) generally have the option blocked. You can often do it on hacked/jailbroken devices, but many of us don't want to do that.

Simple fix: Change the router and/or modem.

Then all communication is forced through OpenDNS.

I did switch Cisco linksys EA3500 wireless to open DNS, using first 3 addresses.
Modem is Charter provide Cisco dpc3010.
Laptops accepted these but smart items see connection but don't link up.
When I switch back to old connection, all connect back a slow speed.
Do you have a router to recommend?
