I went into System, Administration, Network, and added the two Open DNS 
servers to the DNS list, then deleted the two that were previously 
there. However when I log into my Qwest DSL modem the status page shows and 2.25 as the DNS servers, which do not match the numbers 
that were in the Network configuration dialog.

Could you please tell me how to change my DNS servers? My DSL modem is 
an Actiontec GT701, and I am using the Hardy Heron.

Thanks for any help you can be.
