said by d25m03p:I just checked my "other" router that I have connected to my Actiontec as described above. My "other" router is an ASUS WL-520GU running DD-WRT. The DHCP settings in DD-WRT do allow me to set up to three DNS addresses. said by BCer:
Yes, you are correct d25m03p. And I have indeed changed DNS settings on just one computer in order to use unblockus as you suggest. But I also have a Roku and a Kindle Fire HD. DNS cannot be changed on either device. That's why I would like to be able to change the DNS settings at the Modem/Router instead.
Bummer! I did look into my Actiontec (vanilla Telus V1000H) and even in "tech" login mode, the DNS cannot be changed.
However, you could attach another router to the Actiontec LAN to LAN port (use the other router as a switch and ignore the router part), switch off the DHCP in the Actiontec (using the "tech" login), and then setup and use the DHCP in the other router to allocate all the required IP addressing.
This is assuming that the "other" router allows that capability. I would need to experiment with my setup at home unless someone else has done this already.
