Select the DNS tab. Click + and enter 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. These are the addresses for secure OpenDNS’s DNS servers.

A note about PPPoE
If you are connecting to your ISP via a PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) connection, set the DNS servers on the PPPoE connection itself, then restart your computer for the DNS settings to take effect.
