3. Do most of you use the software, and if so, why?
1. I use network settings on computer and it seems quick enough for me - have you seen this thread - - where testing of different DNS speeds is discussed?

2. Whether you choose router or computer settings to access OpenDNS does not change this decision -

3. I don't use the software to monitor IP address as mine rarely changes even though it is dynamic (Virgin Media UK). So I just monitor my IP address myself.
