Hi all,
 I have this router setup and connected to my VDSL modem router.
For the life of my I cant get the router to recognise changed DNS settings e.g Unotelly 

Here is a copy of the set up. The arrows indicate where I have been putting the DNS numbers.
The router still works but inserting the numbers seem to make no difference in with Unotelly.
Is there some tick box or setting I need to click?

Firmware is fine. It's got to do with the setup.

Make sure there is only one DHCP Server running on your network. Use the one on the DD-WRT router, switch off the one on VDSL modem router.

You may find that the VDSL router is handing out IP Addresses with incorrect DNS.

Make sure DD-WRT is setup as a router, not a gateway, setup -> Advanced Routing.

Is it actually connected as a router via its WAN interface??, if not then it would give out addresses via DHCP with itself as gateway to no where.

This is very helpful. My concern is that the VDSL modem/router is the main gateway to the other router and I turned off DHCP on the VDSL router and I lost my internet. Under advanced settings I'll change from gateway to router. I'll keep you posted.

I just checked and its connected to the VDSL via a LAN.

In which case no routing occurs, doesn't matter whether in gateway (NAT between WAN and LAN) or router mode, it is simply a gateway to no where. Maybe does not allow DNS config with WAN interface disabled.

Enable the WAN interface and see if it then allows DNS and gateway assignment and determine what exactly is given out via DHCP. If it gives out itself as the gateway then you obviously can't use it as a DHCP server, use the VDSL router or connect via the WAN interface.

Thanks to everyone, but its all getting a bit complicated.
I will just use the router as gateway to the main VDSL modem/router.

What I was trying to achieve was the main modem/router remaining "pure" no change to DNS settings and a router behind the TV (DD WRT) having Unotelly DNS settings.
