If using the Comcast supplied gateway, you can not change the DNS Server settings directly through the gateway itself.

Adding that we've seen posts here indicating that you can't even change the DNS servers in any individual network clients / devices because the Comcast supplied gateway devices also no longer act as DNS forwarders / relays.
