Configuring Netopia's DHCP client DNS address?

Anyway to get rid of the 3rd and 4th DNS entries after using 'set dns primary-address' and 'set dns secondary-address' command?

Thanks for the answer.

Be nice to know which device you are referring to.

How about leaving the entry blank?

Oops, this will be for a Netopia 3347.

I used 'set dns primary-address 208.67.222.222' and 'set dns secondary-address 208.67.220.220' which is OpenDNS.

DHCP clients are still picking up ISP DNS entries as DNS-3 and DNS-4. I did reboot the Netopia 3347 four times.

I also rebooted the client DNS machines as well.

So far as I know, it will not use the 3rd and 4th DNS entries unless both of the first two entries fail. Since it is unlikely that both OpenDNS addresses will fail at the same time, I wouldn't concern myself with the other 2 DNS entries.

My 3347 has the ISP's DNS set for entries 3 and 4, but everytime that I check (using OpenDNS's test page), I get the confirmation that I am using their service.
