DNS resolution not working

I have an Archer VR1600v v2 00000000. Running diagnostics on network today, I got this message. I'm on a MacBook Pro. Is there something I need to tweak in the router settings? Thanks 😊

Hi @usingtheforce . Was there any problem to start with? Mac is only being thorough. You can allow your router to accept the 2 TPG DNS addresses or set other ones, eg. Google 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Having a second address is just a backup in case the primary one fails.

PCs and Macs normally use the router for DNS but they can also use internet addresses as well.
