NBN Smart Modem can't connect to Rockstar Servers and Services

Answered

Ever since we switched from cable to NBN I haven't been able to connect to the Rockstar game servers or services on my xbox or on my any of my devices when I try to access socialclub.rockstar.com. Am i able to change my DNS settings on a Telstra "Smart" modem or any settings that will help me?

No, you cannot do it on most Telstra modems with exception of Gen2 (one of them)…
But you can change it on the device used to access those sites...

If you change the DNS settings on your device  change both the IPv6 and IPv4 settings or disable LAN IPv6 in the modem (Advanced > Local Network > IPv6 state remove tick). I have found that if you don't change both or disable IPv6 the custom DNS does not work. Disconnect and reconnect device after making any changes for changes to take effect.

Good extra points @cf4... If the devices are Windows, "ipconfig /flushdns" should be good enough...
