DNS problems in dmz mode

I have a WG1608 running goldenorb rooter (version of openwrt). I have the device in dmz mode and dhcp/dns disabled, since rooter doesn't support a full bypass mode.

The rooter device is just acting as a way for me to get internet from my provider since it supports lte modems.

The rooter device is connected to my edgerouter 12. I have verified with some help with the guru's over at the edgemax forums that it is configured correctly to handle dhcp and dns.

My problem is the rooter device (wg1608) is nullifying the dns assignment from the edgerouter.

How do I make openwrt not handle dns assignment?

Thank you,

You will have more luck asking for help at the forum of the maintainer of the firmware.
