How to see DNS server on my new FritzBox...

    With my old netgear dgn3500 I were able to see my DNS server typing the
    command ipconfig/all or nslookup in a command shell.

    Now with a new AVM Fritzbox 7490 and with the same command ipconfig/all
    or nslookup I only see that the dns server is the FritzBox and I cannot
    see to which DNS server i am connected to.

    The configurations of the two router when attached to the same
    telephone line with ADSL, but in different times, are practically the
    same: both are gateway, both have the same ISP, both have the same DNS
    server configured (different from those of ISP), both when in use have
    the same pc and ipcam attached, both in conclusions have the same
    identical configuration.

    During this tests I use the same PC running win8.1pro using the router
    as the DHCP server and "automatically obtain the dns address".

    What can I do to correctly see the name or the IP of the DNS server to
    which i am really connected?

    Sorry for my english...

    Ok...resolved in a way totally opposite to previous configuration on
    Netgear DHN3500 (DNS were defibned on the router and not in PC).

    First of all, I must say that on the avm7490 I cannot disable the
    default DNS from ISP, due to problem with VoIP router's ability.

    So I cancelled any other DNS configuration on the router; the following
    step was to define on the PC my preferred DNS server for each internet

    That's all.
    WireShark confirmed the desidered choice, and now I can control that
    the DNS are right with shell commands ipconfig and nslookup.
