      Question change dns settings on sky router?

      this is driving me crazy.
      i have netflix with unblock us installed on my laptop and i can get netflix US on it, but i want it via my sky router but cannot change dns settings on it.
      my specs are
      System Details
      Manufacturer Sagemcom
      Model Number F@ST2504n
      Firmware Version 6.14.1a4N_UNI
      ADSL Firmware Version A2pD035g.d23j1
      Modem Status Connected
      DownStream Connection Speed 9300 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed 945 kbps

      VPI 0
      VCI 40

      it is on MER as well.

      is there any way i can access it to change them or if not, can i use a different router to change them?
      i have the previous sky router if any use?

      Re: change dns settings on sky router?

      You've already asked this question here.

      I provided you with a solution that allows you to use alternative DNS servers on your netflix box. If my post doesn't make sense, feel free to ask me for clarification, but double posting isn't going to help you! The box you are using will support this means of manually setting the DNS servers. Have you looked into this?

      Isitme also stated that the problem might not be DNS related, and I suspect he is correct.

      Your router will not allow you to change DNS server settings. There is a billion router that is supposed to work with Sky's MER authentication (search the forum for info), but you don't need to do this. Again, I refer you to the answers posted by myself and Isitme in your other duplicate thread.


      Four separate threads you've created on this subject now!

      1. This one
      2. Use alternative router for sky broadband
      3. Change dns settings on old sky router?
      4. New router to use instead of sky one

      Not including another thread in which you've also asked

      5. non sky modem/ router recommendations
