I had this problem. From a command line (assuming windows PC) type ipconfig and note down the settings to enter manually in the Foxtel box's network settings page. For primary DNS just use the same IP as your gateway and it should work. You can leave secondary DNS blank.

You can use 192.168.0.1 as primary DNS and leave secondary DNS blank.

Gateway 192.168.0.1

Subnet Mssk 255.255.255.0

DNS 192.168.0.1

 

You should be able to leave faxtel box on DHCP and these will automatically be filled in.

For some reason DHCP doesn't always work and leaves the DNS blank so I had to do this manually. It sounds like the OP has the same issue.   You are right though - it  'should' just work!
