    Hello
    I have set a network with dhcp in adsl router, and ask if I should fill the DNS field in its Setup GUI 'Local Network -> DHCP Server Definitions' with the two 200.***.***.*** IPs which I can get on the device Status' DNS server or with the LAN interface, private IP address of the ADSL router itself. In the later case, only one.
    Regard

    What I really meant in this situation was what's the difference between using, the private lan ip of the adsl router or the ISP DNS, which is found on device Status page in some cases, in DHCP configuration field of the ADSL router.

    Or other terms, what real DNS server would my adsl router use if I set its private lan ip address (192.168.1.1) on DHCP definitions page on SETUP GUI.

    it would use your ISP dns.. on some it can be overridden.
