Hub 6 / Custom DNS / Modem mode?

hi all,

 

I have a custom web filter system that in order for it to work, I need the pc's/servers etc to connect to the DNS, I was wanting to change the DNS on the hub 6 however it looks like I cant because bt block chancing of it which i find personally very stupid, howevver i tried setting the hub 6 into modem  mode and then allow me to connect a 2nd routor as the main routor, howevver i cannot get the hub6 into a modem mode, ive looked online about getting a VDSL modem from openreach, howevver how will this work as its still going thourth bt, and it will still be forcing there dns?

 

i am on infinity 1 with 40mpbs  / 8mpbs up ( if needed )

You can not set any BT hubs to act as a modem only.

You could use the Openreach modem. It is your router that you use that will set the DNS not the modem. You could also  buy a third party VDSLModem/router which will allow you to set your chosen DNS.

Whoever told you that told you a load of complete rubbish, nothing stopping you using a third party router. I and many others on this forum do so.
