To change it go to your network connections and right click on your wireless connection and click properties. On the general tab select "internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click properties.

You can either select "obtain dns server address automatically" or add one manually. Google's DNS is included in the picture below.

If you need more detailed help, please ask, and also tell us what version of windows you are running.
