How do I change DNS?! Comcast DNS Serverrs are ousy.  I need to change mine.  How does one do this with this equipment they lease to us.  Do I need to buy my own DOCSIS or will it matter? This is ridiculous!!

You can't change the default DNS servers on the Comcast gateways for security reasons. If you really want to use alternate DNS servers, you'll have to use a personal router.

What is happening that makes you think that the Comcast DNS servers are "lousy" ?
