    DNS issue?

    Been running with 1.44.2 on sympatico ISP - for years!
    Thumb Up
    - using BEFSR41 - no problems - since 1.44.2.
    Thumbs Up

    Lately, I have had some problems
    Crying or Very sad :-

    BEFSR41 PPPoE connects - no problem.
    (incorrext!) DNS ip addresses appear to be "stuck' in the BEFSR41.

    Browsers on the LAN side cannot get past DNS lookup;
    pinging DNS addresses on status page - 'no reply';

    After arguing with sympatico "tech support" supervisors I got them to admit that DNS addresses DO change from time to time.

    There is no provision to manually set the DNS address(es) in the BEFSR41.
    Thumb Down

    If I manually set 'correct' DNS address in LAN side PC network settings I can get through to web but the WRONG DNS addresses are still 'stuck' in the BEFSR41 - with no way to corect them!??

    I believe in the philosophy of "If it ain't broke - don't fix it".

    Is there a later firmware with a fix for this 'stuck' DNS (with no manual override) issue?
