Change dns 1 for OpenWrt

So, How to change that DNS 1 to 8.8.8.8? i do not recall seeing correlated option in the adapter setteings!

Go to Network--Interfaces and click the Edit button for WAN. Click the Advanced tab. Uncheck "Use DNS Services Advertised by Peer" and a box will appear to enter your custom DNS.

DNS 1 just means that it is the first one in the list. If you specify more than one, it doesn't work like you might expect. They will be tried in random / round robin fashion. Only if a DNS server is offline will a second one be consulted with the same request.
