WRTP54G - DHCP - DNS Servers?

    I just replaced my old Netgear router and Motorola VOIP box with a Linksys WRTP-54G. Everything is working except that the built in DHCP server passes itself off as the DNS server rather than my ISPs. This in and of itself isn't a real problem except that the built in DNS Server doesn't appear to work. Anyone know what I need to do to get DNS to work with this router? Right now, I'm manually setting the DNS servers to point to my ISPs so it will work. Here's a bit more info:

    - Router has correct DNS IP address listed in the status page.
    - Ping test via the router "diagnostics" page can resolve hostnames.
    - WinXP ipconfig /all shows router IP address as DNS server instead of ISPs DNS server.
    - Lookups via IP address work, but hostnames fail, so its routing ok.
    - If I manually set my DNS server on my laptop, everything works ok.

    On my netgear router, I could specify what the DNS Servers should be that were served up via DHCP. I can't seem to find anything like this in the linksys box.

    Thanks for the help,
