Okay, I'm trying to find my Domain Name Servers (DNS) so I can set up a static IP on my computer. My hub is a BTHomeHub2 just wondering how do I find them with BT?, I've looked on google and it says that I have to look at my routers status page by typing my IP address into my Web Browser but I can't find them, thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Assuming you're using one of the varieties of Microsoft Windows -
1 Open a command prompt window.
2 Type "ipconfig /all" (Don't miss out the space before the slash)
The DNS servers will be listed at the bottom of the results.

Thanks I found it. I need to set up a static IP for a program called "xlink kai" to work.
@Somerled that doesn't work because "Some router's act as a proxy between the actual name servers and your computer" so it just shows your Default Gateway as the DNS but thanks.
You can normally change most of the adaptor settings & set up a static IP address, multiple DNS Servers & the netmask to appropriate settings.
(The Gateway & IP address needs however to remain within or at the appropriate address ranges.)
Setting the IP at a static address in the router seems the appropriate method as you have already discovered.
However for future reference?
This will show your adaptor settings.
netsh interface ip show config
These sets of commands can help set/remove settings from within batch files when appropriate.
netsh interface ip>set
Commands in this context:
set address - Sets the IP address or default gateway to the specified interface.
set dns - Sets DNS server mode and addresses.
set wins - Sets WINS server mode and addresses.
