We received a random computer into our shop that had connectivity issues and no malware or virus but it had DNS servers of 75.126.206.18 and 184.173.169.186.  It normally resides on a "boring home network" with AT&T UVerse with a user that would not know how to change them.  Thoughts on this?

Set them back to dynamic. Also run a Malwarebytes scan to ensure no infections are on the machine.

Those DNS Addresses are commonly used for browser/internet traffic hijacking:
