OpenDNS with new Xfinity Gateway?

I've been sent a new gateway by Comcast, but before I send back my old one, I'm having trouble getting the desired functionality out of my new equipment. 

 

For example, we use OpenDNS for a "set and forget" Internet filter that applies to us all, but I can't seem to find where to change the DNS servers on our new gateway. Actually, I can find where it is reported, but not how to edit it. 

 

For reference, the new gateway is labeled, "Dual-Band WiFi 802.11ac XB3".

 

Thanks for your help.

I believe that they have that feature disabled.

They disabled the end use to change their DNS. So you can only do it on each device not on the router from Comcast
