Settings a DNS server with the Arcadyan Boost 2.0 router (White Cylinder)

I would like to set a DNS server that is not from Telus, specifically 1.1.1.1. However, I can not find ANYWHERE to change my DNS settings. I have looked in the Telus Connect App, as well as the admin panel of the router. On the admin panel. I can see that the DNS and gateway are set to another local ip, 192.168.1.254. Typing this into my browser opens another login page, but no matter what I put it always says my password or username is incorrect. When trying to reset the password it tells me that my default password is incorrect, despite using the one that is on the router. 

 

I have also tried to see if I can do this through the telus website, under the wifi section, but I always get the following error:

`We're sorry - there was an error loading your Wi-Fi information into our system. Please try refreshing this page or rebooting your modem.` . I have tried both of their solutions to no avail

The Boost 2.0 is merely a wireless access point and not a router. It's connected to the primary router that Telus provided to you whether it's the T3200M, the Wifi Hub or the NH20A/FXA5000. They all have the default IP of 192.168.1.254. That's where you would have to try set the DNS.

I forgot to mention I have an NH20A modem. After you left your comment, I realized that I could probably open the front panel to find the password, and lo and behold, it was there. I now managed to log into 192.168.1.254 and I found where I can input the dns. Thank you

Ah, so THAT is where it is. Thanks.

Hello,

I set up the Apache (XAMPP) home server and changed the localhost to a domain name. Now, I am left with how to configure that router to set the website DNS so that it can be reached on the World Wide Web.

I am a newbie and would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks a lot...
