Edit DHCP DNS servers - RBK50

Hi,

Is it possible to manually configure the DNS servers given out by DHCP by the RBK50?  I know you can change the DNS server for the route itself, I'm trying to configure the router to give out a DHCP lease with a DNS server other than itself.

 

Thanks

 

James

EDIT: i've searched the forums and there are lots of similar posts, but nothing conclusive from any recent posts.

Most NG routers including Orbi use a DNS proxy. Thus on the WAN side you can have the router use any custom DNS address. However for the LAN side, connected clients will always recieve the routers IP address for there DNS.

One thing about NG routers I wish NG would allow users to configure. Smiley Frustrated
