There is no need to type in the DNS servers in the IPv4 properties of each machine.

You can just type the DNS server IP's into the routers settings, this will enable all machines in the network to use those DNS servers. This will show up as the Default Gateway IP under DNS servers in the ipconfig/all which means you are obtaining the DNS from the router.
