That's what I expect via DHCP from my local DSL modem so it looks like the XO 
is doing the right thing.  (I didn't verify the packets on the wire/air to 
verify that it's using option 119.)

You will have to try it to verify that it works with your setup.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
