      No, you are getting mixed up between OpenDNS and Dynamic DNS which are two entirely different things. I don't think it is possible to change the DNS servers in the V2 routers, but I stand to be corrected

      If you enter or change the DNS servers in your PC, this over-rides the router, so go to this page, select your OS and follow the instructions.-

      I've been using 3 different ones - Firefox, Chrome and IE, all of them seemed to have the same issue. I will see if changing DNS on my computer helps.

      Right, problem solved. One of the computer connected to network has been infected with trojans and viruses and that's what caused all of the problems.
