Set DNS servers in Home Hub 2000?
I'm hoping there's some knowledgeable techie out here who can assist. I am trying to change the DNS servers in the brand-spanking new Home Hub 2000 (a Sagemcom Fast 5250) but to no avail. I've manually added my preferred DNS servers in the Advanced Settings under Modem Settings, and they appear to be valid. However, they are not doing anything. If I go to dnsleaktest, the results constantly show Bell's DNS servers along the lines of 198.235.211.* and 198.235.210* for a toroon*.srvr.bell.ca or mtrlpq*.srvr.bell.ca address, respectively.
Of course, if I manually add the DNS server into my PC's ethernet settings, the DNS servers hold and dnsleaktest pushes back the correct DNS server. I would really like the modem to maintain these settings as I want the DNS servers to apply to all my connected devices and would rather not manually change the DNS servers for all my devices (and some devices actually don't let me configure the DNS servers anyways).
Am I missing something? I called Bell Tech and they insist the they don't block DNS servers... but that seems wrong when dnsleaktest keeps showing their DNS server apply when the modem is in charge of setting the DNS server.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated...
P.S. I've done my homework and searched left, right & centre, but can't find the answer to this...
