Technicolor TG582n and OpenDNS

Hi,
Is it possible to configure the TG582n router to use OpenDNS instead of the default settings? I can't find it in any of the config options.
Thanks,
AdrianR

Re: Technicolor TG582n and OpenDNS

i think that you have to use the CLI (command line interface) as in this library article http://community.plus.net/library/dns/how-to-change-the-default-dns-servers-in-a-thomson-speedtouch-... however it is likely that the commands have changed.
It may be easier to setup each computer to use OpenDNS rather than via the router settings

That worked, many thanks.
I have PuTTy on my PC for work so can telnet in easily, setup is as described in the link and now the OpenDNS routers show up in the graphical config.
You can also test it here - http://www.opendns.com/support/article/64
Thanks again - OpenDNS is a useful first line of defence against internet nasties.
