According to this reference you can try the following:
A] With the help of Cisco Connect Software (if at all you have installed the router with the help of this software)
1] Open the software and go to the option which says "Router Settings"
2] Then click on the option which says "Advanced Settings" which will take you to the router's configuration page.
3] Then click on Security tab disable SPI Firewall Protection, uncheck Filter Anonymous Internet Requests....
B] If you haven't installed Cisco Connect then you can log on to the router's user interface using its default IP address in the browser which is 192.168.1.1 and type in 'admin' as the password leaving the user name field blank. This will take you to the router's web interface and then follow steps as mentioned above to make the changes.
Second, try to provide the router's internal IP address as the 3rd DNS..Then check the status..

None of your suggestions worked, but I noticed in the firmware release history for V2.0.37 Build 131047 which is the firmware I have the following was fixed:
Fixed static DNS server addresses not being propagated to the clients via DHCP in In PPPoE mode
This is my exact problem but it is not fixed in my firmware that I'm using though it says it is the same version. So Linksys need to check this as the problem has not been fixed.

message for H6N:
if your connected through a PPPOE connection with a DSL provider, the open DNS and static connection is not needed anymore. all you needed to do is to set your router to PPPOE. you can disable the CISCO CONNECT software and manually input the username and password obtained from your ISP (internet service provider). then you should be able to have internet connection. it really varies to the type of your internet connection because it has several kinds of authentication needed for router to communicate with the modem you have from your ISP. anyhow, you can buzz me up since i can assist you with your concern. hope this one helps.

I'm having the same problem here.
I can't seem to choose my DNS's server since the ISP prevails regarding the choice, always. Can't use unblock-us. I tried other Routers and no problem on older models (E1000 and D-Link Black something bla bla bla).
This issue should be reported to Linksys ASAP to send a fix about it.
P.S: No i don't use the Cisco Connect, i use the web interface. It's easier.

>>My conection type is PPPOE. I put the OpenDNS DNS in the setup page but in the stauts page it shows my ISP's DNS. It >>worked fine when I had a linksys WRT54G but doesn't for my EA4500.
Same issue here. I'm from Brazil, using GVT and unblock-us for DNS services. PPPoE also. And i'm not able to choose my DNS as well. My Router is an EA3500. When i use my older model E1000 it works ok. I just hang up with the support area of linksys and asked them for support and they could not answer my problem. It's a long journey guys...

If you put the OpenDNS DNS server addresses in the Setup page (DNS 1 and DNS 2 etc) and reboot the router, you will find you are using OpenDNS even though on the Status page it lists your ISP DNS servers.
