    DNS for linksys router

    Hi,
    I have a Linksys router with DSL broadband connection. Whenever i try to connect with it i get problems connecting internet. I think there may be something wrong with my network configurations. It creates problem related to DNS everytime i try to connect. I need to change the preferred DNS settings of my router. Can someone help?

    Thank you for all replies.

    You can try using opendns. It is a free service that works for networks of all sizes and make the Internet safer through integrated Web content filtering, anti-phishing and DNS. It gives public DNS services and its free. You can use third part DNS to solve the DNS issues.
