Windows 7: Windows DNS vs Router DNS Settings


31 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64bit, Windows 7 HP 64bit
 
 

I use openDNS and have it setup in my Router. My PC's are set to auto and uses the Router as the DNS service so all my PC's will use openDNS.

192.168.1.1 is my Router. If I want to change my DNS service all I have to do is update the Router.

Richard, I have one of those pesky Westell A90 70522 modem/routers and want to set it up with OpenDNS. Could you please share where/how you found the settings in order to change them? Thanks so much. I know this is a couple of years after your original post, so I hope you remember! :-) Thank you!
