    What does "Ability to provide a specific set of DNS servers to clients." mean and where is it configured?

    Update:

    I found it within the Settings on the Inventory Page.

    I see that this is a global Setting.
    Would it be possible to add a DNS Setting to the NATed Network Option?

    Currently it is only possible to set the Network IP and Subnet Mask within an SSID when a NATed Network is used.

    If someone wants to use DNS Webfilter it is currently not possible to set different DNS Servers vor different SSIDs.

    I also wish that this would be a per SSID option if you are using the NATed option. ​

    The DNS configuration will apply when an Instant On acts as the DHCP server (NAT/Gateway) to all DHCP clients (including other Instant On devices if applicable).

    I know.

    Would it be possible to give an option to define DNS Servers per Network or SSID and not global?

    I think to define this globally is a step in the right direction.

    But I think the ability to define this per Network would be great.
