582n - very sluggish today

I have no idea why but today the router is being very slow, taking several seconds to load a web page up, speed tests show my speeds are still high (7.5mb).  I changed the DNS settings in Windows to OpenDNS and Google and now web pages load up quickly again.
Now, an nslookup also brings interesting results:

DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  2a02:16c8:2000:f00::
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
*** Request to UnKnown timed-out

So for some reason my PC is only looking at the IPV6 DNS server to try and resolve a domain name, but:

over a maximum of 30 hops:

Anyone know how to change DNS servers on the actual router?

Hi David,
You can follow this post here, the steps should be very similar but I'm not sure what effect the IPv6 address will have on the commands you'll need to run.

Let me know how you get on.

May have had the same thing happen to my 582n a couple of days ago. Very slow loading pages on my smartphone. No time to investigate and it seemed to have sorted itself out when I got home a few hours later.

Those instructions did work for the router, I have PN as primary and OpenDNS as secondary, wanted google as 3rd but doesn't look like that is supported.  Tried adding 2620:0:ccc::2 but it rejected it as an invalid IPV4 address which suggests it's possible to add IPV6 dns servers in there too.
Today (and yesterday I think) I had an issue where it's been losing connection with the exchange:

Although that could be me, it's just noticable as I have to queue again to get into SWTOR  Cry
