I cannot access the correct menu to change my routers DNS settings. Can someone tell me the page link to change them on a 2701HGV-B Gateway ? (AT&T Uverse modem)

Thanks.

Go to Broadband Link -> Advanced settings
There, look for the Broadband DNS section, in the lower right corner.

I know where it should be but not all routers include those pages. Mine does not. I need the URL.

If the link doesn't show, I would suspect the provider disabled the page and it wouldn't even show if you entered the URL.
Don't have one at hand to get the URL, sorry.

Actually, they aren't disabled as I can find other "hidden" pages. I just don't know the exact URL of this page. If someone with the actual router would like to help I would appreciate It.

I have AT&T Uverse and I've looked for this before.  It can't be done the way you are thinking.  (See this post: http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/r23543062-New-UVerse-3800HGVB-not-able-to-change-DNS-settings)

Based on my research, the UVerse service requires (so it is claimed) thier own DNS as part of making the service work.  I think is is the TV part of UVerse that needs their own network.  

In the link above, some peole give you a workaround, which, I'm guessing based on your knowledge in being able to ask this question, the best solution would be to set up a seprate wireless router in a DMZ off the RG to run all your local computers on and then you can manage your own settings completely.

Actually I was trying to set the LAN side dns and someone posted a screenshot of a page on that router that allowed for a manual setting but didn't post the actual url.

I think they are one in the same.  The "DHCP Server" functionality in the RG is what deteremines what configuration info is sent to DHCP clients.  Mine only allows me to change the range of IP addresses assigned to clients.  The only ways I think you can have a different DNS setting than what the RG assigns is to have a different DHCP server (i.e. another router) or manually configure it on your clients.

I'm beginning to think they didnt have the same router. I did setup a dhcp server behind the router to get this done. Thanks for your insight.
