When my daughter was a teenager our parrot learned to call out her name every time the telephone rang and I never figured out how that happened either. grin

I remember I did hit the 'Apply' button because it told me the router is about the apply the changes and will not be available for a while...

Then I lost the 2.4 Ghz network ( my iPad is on)

(reminds me of a Rodney Dangerfield quote, "I think my wife's cheating on me - every time I come home the parrot yells 'quick, out the window!'")

Well, I signed up for OpenDNS from their website, and it seems they are doing all the work. They monitor my IP and filter based on my settings plus what others suggest and get voted on in discussion boards. I think MacKeeper tops the list!

Thanks, guys.

What does MacKeeper and its unsavory reputation have to do with OpenDNS?
