    i'm sorry dude.. but i dont have that modem.. you should find the DNS option somewhere there.under ADVANCED SETTINGS or something..i hope somebody else who has that modem or knows abt this helps you!!

    Default ZTE 831 advanced settings

    here is the solution. type 192.168.1.1 (or whatever you have configured for your modem) in your browser and log on with username and password. Once logged on the address shows as http://192.168.1.1/home.html. Now change it to http://192.168.1.1/home1.html and press "Enter" key. Now you have advanced config. Go to configuration --> dns client option and change the settings.
    Now I have a question too. Does changing these DNS servers really help in any way, I have never tried it. What is the advantage / disadvantage

    thanks it did work out....................can u provide me user manual of this modem i.e. zte zxdsl 831 aii............bsnl technicians didn't provide me one & i didn't get any cd as well of drivers they told me that these modem where without cd & kindly explain what is firmware option meaning........??????????????
    bye the way i read online about open dns server which helps in increasing our browsing speed because it has less no. of user while on the contrary the dns which is assigned to us is slow because of higher no. of user's ............but,sry i don't know much about it & as well was wondering whether by using a 3rd party server would our usage be accounted???????????????......as u r not utilizing the basic isp server....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
