Hi guys

Can anyone post some instructions for how to manually edit the DNS servers in the Telecom TG589vn router? I have some friends who I've setup Netflix for using unblock-us but for now I have the DNS set via the device as couldn't figure out how to set it in the router. I'd like to set it in the router now so that any other devices just work with it rather than me having to set each one up for them.

It can't be changed via the GUI... I believe you have to do it via command line but I'm having trouble finding the instructions.

dhcp server lease flush 
dhcp server pool config name=LAN_private primdns= secdns=
dhcp server config state=enabled 
dns client flush
