Do you want it permanent or temporary?

nslookup does temporary DNS for testing.

e.g.

NSLOOKUP

SERVER DNS1.TEST.COM

Otherwise:
Start
Control Panel
Network and Sharing Center
Change Adapter Settings
Right Click Adapter > Properties
Select "Internet Protocol Version 4"
Click Properties
Under "Use the following DNS Server Addresses" change the IP to the one you want to use.
Click OK
Click OK

Yeah so temporarily as I posted above:

start
run
CMD
nslookup
server DNS1.testing.com
(it should say default server DNS1.testing.com or whatever you set here)

--- now just type the place you want to lookup e.g. google.com and press enter.
