No !!! Don't change it there. That is the IP address sent to your dhcp clients 
for them to use for dns. If you set that to, no one will find anything.
You need to run setup either from a terminal window on the ipcop box or by ssh.		
About halfway down is "Networking" which you select, and in that menu is "Dns 
and Gateway Settings".

You would set the primary dns to and if you want set the secondary 
dns to what your primary dns was set at. You might have to play with the 
options to have dhcp assigned red and still be able to set your nameserver 
The ipcop boxes I have are all on static ip's, on either T1's or business 
class DSL, so the settings are a little different.

Whatever you do, write down the original settings of anything you change so 
you can restore it if it horribly breaks.

You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
