    I need to access websites at work blocked by OpenDNS. My company recently installed the OpenDNS web securities system in order to stop adult content/games from being accessible at work. However, OpenDNS blocks EVERYTHING including email, forums, tech sites, their own site, etc. Going to the network admin is not an option. I know whitelists would fix this, but that requires the OpenDNS login details. Is there any way at all to bypass this without being able to log in to the router? If not a software, is there a physical solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We use Netgear routers if that is any help. Thank you.

    OpenDNS has a long list of categories that can be blocked, some of which would include tech sites and forums. This would have to be resolved by the network admin... but I am curious, why is going to the network admin not an option?

    Too bad, 'cause getting or offering help for bypassing company restrictions is not an option here. Closing.
