    Accepted Solution

    Yes, on the wifi settings, hold the current wifi, then modify currenct network config, go to advanced settings, and change IP Settings from DHCP to Static. Use an IP address that's either very high or very low (depending on your current DHCP settings). Then adjust the DNS to the Open DNS server IP's.
    If you ever use the tablet somewhere else (maybe a visit here or there), you have to do the same steps again (except, on the wifi screen, change the wifi configuration of the network you're connected to there)

    So no way to set the Dns permanently ?!

    It's permanent for the Wi-Fi network where you set it. It will be remembered forever, so in a way, it is permanent. Of course I know what you mean, you want to set it only once for all Wi-Fi networks, old and new (future ones). Then the answer is no. But honestly, you only have to set a handful of Wi-Fi access points?

    Its a solution but has to be set per wireless connection - not practical.

    Looks like I will need to but a memory chip to re install the op sys

    That's only used in extreme situations. If you just want to start over (instead of reverting from a OS upgrade), the factory default settings will do just fine.
