Frustration

I can't get DHCP to work properly on my LAN. I've got a DHCP server package for my Windows Home Server, and my Netgear hub does DHCP. Using one, or the other (but never both) I have the same problem: IPs are getting assigned but the DNS server addresses aren't getting loaded. So the computer can communicate, but it can't look anything up.

The way I've been coping is to manually set the DNS's in my slate and my fire. But that won't work with my phone, so far as I can tell. It doesn't give me that level of control.

UPDATE: Fortunately, I did not do this to my LAN.
