DNS Server on router

Answered Question
Mar 24th, 2009

Hi all...Please can someone help me!

OK here is the issue, I have just set up an 837 at home in place of my bband wireless router. I managed to get the ADSL configured correctly and NAT etc is all working fine, however I could not figure how to set up the DNS.

Previously the old Netgear router i replaced with this used to do DNS locally for me as I dont have a DNS server set up at home...

Now in the config I have pointed the router towards 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 for DNS and also set DHCP to automatically assign the same DNS server to clients (as otherwise they cant browse the net!)

I thought the clients could use the router (10.10.10.1) as their DNS server but I cant seem to get that working...

n e ideas?

I believe you'll need to enter a domain name for your router:

ip domain name

Thanks john but I dont have a domain set up at home, just a couple of home PC's....

It's fine :)

ip domain name home-router.info

This isn't propagated anywhere.

HTH,

would i then be able to set the router (10.10.10.1) as my DNS server on my host pc's?

Should. It looked like you had everything else in the config.

You *may* need:

ip domain-lookup

as well.
