Hi,

I have a Thomson VDSL router from Telecom.  I want to change the DNS to use unblock-us.com

So far I have done the following....

:dns server forward dnsset flush    
:dns server forward dnsset add set=0 dns=111.118.175.56 metric=0 intf=PPPoE
:dns server forward dnsset add set=0 dns=118.127.33.48 metric=0 intf=PPPoE
saveall

Then when I run
:dns server forward dnsset list

I get

Set Metric Flg DNS-Server EDNS Label Intf State
--- ------ --- --------------------------------------- ----
0       0          111.118.175.56             PPPoE UP
0       0          118.127.33.48               PPPoE UP

So far so good but when I restart my router it defaults to Telecom DNS.

Anyone know what I can do to permanently configure the router with unblock-us DNS?

Thanks.

Possibly PPP overwriting the DNS entries when the link comes up after a reboot.  Easy enough to test.  Just drop your PPPoE connection then bring it back up and see if it has the same effect.

yup that looks like the case. Any way around it?

Sorry.  Nothing obvious. There are probably a few workarounds you could try though.  If you are just wanting to straight out replace you ISP supplied DNS, you could look at just modifying the servers advertised by DHCP.
