    if your putting it on your box.

    setup...system...network...device setup...adapter settings

    these are my settings for a fixed ip using google dns and opendns.

    quick note:
    you may have to change DHCP to no / create a static IP before you can edit DNS settings

    Google did have a major DNS problem some weeks back. But might be better to get a smart DNS

    I was given a site to visit and my providor had blocked it but by changing to a smart dns it is now available. The fact it being a differant DNS can help these silly problems but once they decide to get together a bit more it will be the only way, that and vpn.

    set my router and box to google and was not asked for static ip so all good just left DHCP to know as the box is reading from my gateway which is my router address set to same so all good

    it is better if you define a static internal ip for your box though.
    That way it never changes and if you end up a faffer and are always ftping or telneting you don't have to keep checking what the ip address is.
    All routers are different, but usually under advanced settings you will have something like Static ARP where you designate an ip to the mac address of your sat box
