Please explain.
I have it on windows 10 and it works pretty much the same as it did before I upgraded from 8.

The thing with k9 is that it's no longer properly updated and it has a hard time blocking certain things (i.e. certain google services). As per a conversation I had with a TAG rep.

I've heard from multiple people that K9 sometimes decides to stop working (allow things that are usually blocked, etc).  My suspicion is that it only occurs to computers that had k9 installed on w7 or w81, and then got upgraded to 10.  But if TAG says it works then it works.. they deal with this more then i do

Is there a way to just change dns in a router gui and have filtering for any device connected to the router?

most routers yes. yes, although most clients can configure their own custom dns servers and choose to ignore the one set on router.

The more advanced routers offer firewalls that can block all DNS traffic excluding packets with opendns ip addresses as destination. I can confirm that this works, if a client tries to connect with alternate DNS servers, the connection will be refused

Optimums router is configured thru Optimum.com, and I do not see the option to add a DNS for filtering.
The DNS option is definitely there, check all the options under "advanced" on the left

Any recommendations? In this case the users won't be bypassing anything.

Sure - I wont elaborate on the way around it - but this is how the firewall should be setup for opendns


Opendns -  208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220 - Allowed - Port 53 - UDP

All others -  * - Blocked - Port 53 - UDP
