The unit you are using is a combined "Router" and "Modem".

The modem will pull the IP information from your ISP to get your WAN address and DNS numbers. By checking the box in Windows to specify the DNS servers you bypass those set by your ISP.

Leave the box unchecked and to be "Automatically Assigned" and this should be an issue anymore and I'm going to say that you probably either did this in the past or you entered your ISP' DNS manually.
