How To Easily Set Up Router

Buffalo router change DNS

Normally the ethernet connection is: PC(s) -> old Buffalo AirStation router -> cable modem -> "The Internet".

My ISP has had some hardware maintenance done over the weekend, and the external IP address given to the device connected to the cable modem has changed, everything has been rebooted, and so on.

Currently I can only connect to the Internet if I bypass the router, and connect directly PC -> cable modem.

  • With the router in the path, DNS doesn't work, and that still applies even if I specify DNS server IP addresses in the Network Connection settings on the PC
  • With the router bypassed, DNS works whether or not I specify DNS server IP addresses in the Network Connection settings on the PC[/list]Presumably 'something' in the router settings is preventing the automatic assignment of DNS server IP addresses from the cable modem, and not allowing these DNS server IP addresses from the PC. (I suppose it is possible that this 4-year-old router has failed, partially.)

    Where should I be looking in the router to find what the problem is? As far as I can see, anything relating to DNS is set to 'automatic'...

    And is there any PC command which will assist (other than IPCONFIG /ALL !)?

How to change DNS server when using a router?

I have an ADSL router and when i was installing comodo firewall, it asked to changed the DNS server to something else. I answered yes. but is it really possible to do without changing router settings from the router configuration page?
if yes, does that means i have to change it manually?
