Most of these test only for the ISP's and IPv6 connectivity so isn't very useful until they change over.

Currently, in ipconfig /all, my DNS server is set to my default gateway address 10.0.0.2(and I assume this would resolve to my ISP's DNS servers should any addresses not show up on my default gateway's list of stored addresses).If I change this to Google's DNS servers, what would the implications be?

Thank You!
When you see the default gateway showing up for the DNS server it means that you are using the DNS server that is in your routers DNS settings on the set up page. Though in your case it appears that only a modem is being used so you are most likely using which ever DNS your ISP is using.

Changing over to Google won't hurt a thing, though you may need an actual router to make that change. Unlike most ISP's, Google can handle IPv6 requests though we will be limited on connectivity until our ISP's implement the IPv6 protocol.
