You might want to add something similar to the following lines to your 
config file under the <dhcpd> section:


This will cause the DHCP server  to hand out the DNS servers of your choice 
instead of the firewall's own LAN address.  Seems to work much better for me 
than having the firewall forwarding DNS requests.

How would I override the dns servers that m0n0wall aquires from dhcp and
implement two different ones? I have unchecked

"Allow DNS server list to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN"

I have two entries in the DNS servers but the interfaces status shows only
the dhcp assigned dns servers.

Any suggestions from all of you smart gentlemen out there?
