You can do like I have configured:
1) in "general" tab you put the DNS servers you want to use, I use 2 from
OpenDNS and 1 own DNS, UNcheck the box "Allow DNS server list to be
overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN"
2) Tab "DNS forwarder" Check box "Enable DNS forwarder" and check box
"Register DHCP leases in DNS forwarder" and save
3) That's it, works better then the DNS servers I got via my ISP, in fact,
uptil now I did not have any probs anymore with DNS.
