Yes you should.

Every one that I have ever used always hands down the DNS server addresses obtained from the ISP or manually input into the router. That is with several Linksys models and my current Zyxel Zywall 5 that I have had for 8+ years. I can't check the NetGear I have as it is setup as just a wireless access point.
You really don't want the router to do the DNS lookups. With that type of setup the PC asks the router "Connect me to Google.com" the router then has to go out to the Real DNS servers and say "Give me the IP address for Google.com", Then it get a response from the Real DNS and then sends that back to the PC. Where if the computer is set to use the Real DNS it just asks that to forward that address to the browser and connect to it.

Some malware called PlayBryte? Is it safe to remove the registry values for it?

Not sure but you should do a search of your drive for that PlayBrytetoolbar also.

Well, after removing the PlayBryte, and switching to Google's Public DNS (I did that on my own), my internet seems to be working. There hasn't been any lag or shutoff for the last 8 hours. Thanks for the help. This is my updated ipconfig, although I'm not sure if it changed or not. I will set this topic as solved unless there is anything else wrong?

Select Internet Protocol Version 4. Down the bottom of the properties box that comes up, put in only your router/default gateway as the primary DNS server.
Do NOT do that, Very Bad Idea!!!!

That puts extra work on the router and if the router is not setup to forward DNS lookup requests you will never get connected to any website. If the router was designed to also be the DNS lookup point and or server it would be configured that way by default.

The router's I've set up are like this also, same with auto DNS to the ISP. I've never needed to type the default gateway in where it says DNS. Most routers will forward DNS requests as soon as you type in the DNS servers into the routers settings.

I've also never had a problem with the router being used as the DNS host, default gateway shows up as the DNS server in the ipconfig which only means the DNS is being handled by the router.

My point is if the router is passing down the real DNS server addresses to all computer there is no reason to change it to have the router forward the DNS lookup and act as the DNS server in the computers network setup.
There is no point in doing this if the computer already has the Real DNS server addresses.

I would think in the sense of security and availability, it would keep real world DNS traffic at the router and setting DNS servers manually on the PC is another point in the chain for fail as the ISP changes their infrastructure and your DNS entries become invalid. I can't choose a manual IP and use auto DNS in my pc's config.

No setting on the router gets changed for it to do this function automatically.
