BT Hub 5 Custom DNS


Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get the BT Business Hub to give its DHCP clients a DNS server other than itself? I can't find a setting for it in the browser interface.

You can change DNS settings to manual on the BTHub5, all you have to do is as follows:


  • Login to BTHub5
  • Go to Advanced Settings
  • Click on the Broadband top level menu
  • Then click on Internet(Which should be the default view)

When on this page you see all of the related Internet configuration info including BT DNS servers. Next you do as follows:


  • Click the disconnect button at bottom right of page(be aware this will disconnect your broadband connection)
  • Once disconnected you will see an option for DNS which you can change from auto to manual
  • Select manual and you will get 2 boxes appear below to enter your manual DNS servers.
  • Once DNS details have been added you simply reconnect to re-establish the broadband connection and hey presto, you have your own DNS servers configured.

With OpenDNS servers and it all works and you can now restrict access to sites based on  OpenDNS policies.


Hope this helps!
