It is my understanding that good majority of consumer-grade gateway devices
(all-in-one ADSL/Wireless) do indeed run a DNS service
, however these typically only
-only and normally only
queries that it does not have cached
(typically) configured to an ISP
I can confirm that the Netgear DGND4000 does
DNS service (although I cannot determine whether you can disable it or not)
but said DNS service will only run in a caching only (forwarding)
as is with most other devices
It might be prudent to check the Broadband Whirlpool Forums Hardware
database here: http://bc.whirlpool.net.au/bc/hardware/
If the device has DNS forwarding listed,
chances are that is all it will provide with the manufacturers firmware
Other option, if you require a fully-functional DNS server for your local
network, you could consider
] or OpenWr
] on the device and install the bind DNS server
, or run your own DNS server on another machine within your network.
