/etc/resolv.conf configuration when behind a router(not a linux router)


hey guys,
I was just wondering if we can put the IP address of our router as the nameserver for our machine.Currently my /etc/resolv.conf states:
Code:
search earthlink.net
nameserver 207.69.188.185
nameserver 207.69.188.186
nameserver 207.69.188.187
I was wondering if i could change the nameserver lines to 192.168.0.1(my router IP).
I have a Netgear router.
Just wondering if this is possible and if this will make connections work faster?
also will i have to change gatweay information too if i change this address?
thanks

I don't think this would work. Your DNS holds a domain names to IP adress mapping. your router does not do that. your packets would just get dropped
