I am using a WiFi modem to connect to internet. It is a router AWA a modem (Teracom Wireless Wifi Router cum ADSL2 + Modem).

The connection is secure. I have a broadband connection, which requires username and password. The connection settings are not set inside the modem (and I don't want to) so that each time, after my laptop connect to the modem through WiFi, I manually dial broadband connection. These all works fine.

But I want to change DND server settings, since the default settings blocks access to some websites. I downloaded DNS jumper software. Using that, I can successfully change DNS of my

  1. Bluetooth device PAN
  2. Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet and
  3. Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN.

But there is another entry in the drop-down list, that is the name of my broadband connection (that I dial using un and pw). But each time I change the DNS of this entry, it is getting restored. I cant change that entry.

So which DNS address should I change to access those blocked sites and (or) to improve speed? and why cant I change the broadband connection's DNS?
