Change the DNS settings on a Netgear CG3000
If you followed our login guide above then you should see this screen.
You begin on the Modem Status page of the Netgear CG3000 router. To change the Domain Name System (DNS) settings, click the choice on the left side of the page labeled Basic Settings.
Configure the DNS section of your Netgear CG3000
You are now on the Basic Settings page. This is the only screenshot we have of a DNS server for this router. Generally the WAN DNS is used for updates and the LAN is primarily used for day to day use. If you can find another DNS server page for this router, please let us know.
We still recommend setting this DNS server if possible. If your Cable Network Settings are set to Static IP enter the primary address of the DNS server you want to use in the boxes labeled Primary DNS. Enter the secondary address of the DNS server in the boxes labeled Secondary DNS.
