How to change the DNS servers on a Hitron business router?

We've just had our Hitron router set up for our business broadband and we're looking to change the DNS servers to something faster and more secure but can't see any settings. 

Does anyone know if this can be done on the Hitron router?

Thanks.

This is a board for residential customers not business customers, you should call the business help number. Someone may be able to help, but it will take sometime.

Unfortunately they aren’t very helpful at all so I thought I’d try asking here but never mind 🙂

Thanks for that, looking around that does seem to be the case so that’s what we’ll do. 

Thank you.

Hello

One thing to note before you look at going down the modem only mode, if you have a static IP address or multiples then I am afraid that modem mode is not an option as the Hitron will be in GRE tunnel mode and in that mode there is no modem only setting.
