Xfinity modem DNS changes on xfi gateway

Does the new xfi gateway allow you to edit the DNS settngs?

No Comcast gateway allows you to change DNS. Worse, it will intercept any DNS and redirect it to their own. So changing DNS on your computer or device will not make a difference.

I am trying to set up a "pi hole" on my home network. In order for this to work, I need to give the modem/router a DNS entry to use the "pi hole".
