Changing DNS Settings

Does anyone know how to change the DNS Settings for my Telstra Bigpond Wireless Broadband Service? I have tried various entries without success.

 

I am using AirCard Watcher with a Telstra supplied Sierra Wireless Modem.

 

Thanks,

LabMan

Re: Changing DNS Settings

Thanks Ktoffeti ,

 

but you missed the point of my question. I wish to change to different DNS Server, from the Bigpond ones. Also your answer does not list how to do this in a manner which will work.

Re: Changing DNS Settings

Thanks, but I went through all this and still no change in DNS when I checked on the Operating System. Must be hard coded in the Telstra supplied Sierra Wireless Modem.....

Hey Labman, 

 

You can change the DNS on your PC or device. Have you tried changing them there?
