no idea how you change a registry entry in vb6, but you probably either know or can find out easily or alternatively can spawn a regedit command that does the same.

the registry entry that holds dns servers is :
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\NameServer

several nameservers can be provided in a space-separated list

Generally script will update the below registry path for DNS updation,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces

Go through below Technet link and modify your script according to your requirement.
