Hi Guys, I would really appreciate anyone’s help with how to change the DNS on my Huawei HG 659 router, I have seen a few people asking on here but can't actually see how it’s done. The goal is to use www.unblock-us.com so if anyone else has done this successfully I would love to hear hows its done.

Hi @LachieWilkinson 

To change the DNS setting on the HG659 modem you need to login with elevated admin levels.

Rather than using the username and password: vodafone/vodafone

 

you need to use the following:

Username: Admin

Password: VF-NZhg659

(these are case sensitive so use capitals where i have typed them)

 

hope this helps Smiley Happy
