I am running an adgaurd home server and have had time after our move to reinstate it. But now on the modem I don't see an option to customize the dhcp DNS address to point to it to my server?

Or I haven't found it, anyone that can assist?

Are you a 4G customer? If so, the DNS settings are locked down. For fibre you can change it if you set the connection type to ethernet instead of auto or the option for 4G

I am yes - but I don't want to change the WAN DNS (which option i did find) as yes this is configured by the provider. But all modems I have used in the past always had the option that in addtion to DHCP assignments for clients connecting, I could force them use a preconfigured DNS (which is seperate to the WAN DNS) which basically routes it through my server first before connecting to the WAN DNS.

 

 

 

I found an option called fixed routing which I can route through to my server first, but its IP based only, not DNS based.

yeah, the smart modem doesn't let you change DNS for DHCP or WAN side of 4G
