Hmmm.  That's interesting.  I was thinking I couldn't do that.  I have
routers within routers but the one connected directly to the internet has a
caching DNS built in - and I can't touch it.  There's really no reason I
can't have the wireless router - through which everybody connects - go
through openDNS, though.  Definitely worth a try.

fwiw, what prinicple do people find objectionable about openDNS?
