You may need to update the firmware on your router (if this is considered a
significant bug by Belkin) or replace it with a device that supports DD-WRT or
similar open software that will give you more control. Commodity devices are
designed to minimize support calls, so handling of such edge cases as not using
the ISP DNS settings are relegated to check boxes on a review form. (Whether it
actually works is seldom verified by a reviewer.)  --Don

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
