    My modem never shows the correct time in its UI dashboard?

    I used to wonder about that also, From the DrayTeK 130 user guide, the date and Time can be adjusted from System Maintenance > Date and Time, but as we are running the special BT approved build, this option is not available via the GUI.

    When you log on to the DrayTeK 130, it should say ‘User Mode is OFF’, and I have always assumed, this means I is locked down and never found the a way to enable user mode?

    I never tried the CD that came with the disk, but I assumed it does nothing extra ?

    I have changed my dns server settings in both the Draytek modem and Asus 66u router but the Draytek modem still shows I’m connected to the old dns servers and the router is saying I’m connected to the new dns servers, confused.

    DNS is a means by which Real Name, (URL’s) are mapped to IP address, so when you type http://www.bbc.co.uk, the PC knows to go to 212.58.249.209, your DrayTeK is a modem and is in bridge mode, so any user typing in Real names, is automatically mapped to an IP address via your ASUS router, changing your DrayTeK DNS details offers no advantage, as the DNS on the modem is not used by user in a typical scenario.

    Above is short explanation, as I realise DNS is way more complicated, but trying to keep user explanation user friendly.

    Hope that helps?

    So, is there a way to tell which ones I’m using ? Modem stats say one thing and router says another.

    For DNS, you will be using the Routers DNS, as DrayTek 130 is in Bridge Mode, everything passes through to Router. modem only converts what BT sends down the DSL line into something the Router can understand  (PPPoE)
