4.2.2.3 & 4.2.2.5 seem to be Level3's free DNS service.
As john46 has said you could try Google's DNS service 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4

BT's DNS servers are normally automatically assigned to the router unless the router is specifically told to use different DNS servers.

Also make sure the DNS settings on the device you are using is correct too.

"Also make sure the DNS settings on the device you are using is correct too."

What do you mean?

I've also tried using all types of DNS errors but I'm still getting this "Windows cannot communicate with device or resource (Primary DNS)"
