    I have the Motorola Xoom on wifi here and my U-Verse connection sometimes messes up with the DNS rendering me unable to surf the web with my tablet, is there some way to change the DNS settings on it?

    On the Xoom? Wherever your network settings are. Wifi > Advanced is sort of a generic Android place to have this.

    U-Verse? No. You'll lose your IPTV and/or VOIP, whatever services you have. If you have internet only, there is a small possibility that you could.

    If you have further tablet-specific questions, which one?

    While that would me what I would do with my Nexus One, Android 3.0 the Motorola Xoom lacks the standard DHCP settings in that menu

    I don't know, but we aren't looking specifically for DHCP settings, but TCP/IP DNS settings. If you would pull the support link for your exact model and Android version from the Xoom link I provided above, I could at least look at the available documentation.

    That is the exact model I have, thank you very much

    Edit: Never mind, I found the setting, they moved it to a more obscure place, apparently I have to press and hold on the network I wish to edit in Android 3.0.

    Well, you found better than what I could - my only guess from documentation was
    Apps > Settings > Wireless & Networks.

    Note, though, that OpenDNS is for networks, not so much devices. If you connect to networks other than your own (business, public WiFi, etc.), you can't be using OpenDNS filtering in these networks anyway. Also, wireless internet (3G, etc.) generally does not allow you to change settings either, and you likely do not even have your own non-proxied, non-NATted IP address.

    Now, if you use this device in your own network, it will use the settings you have set on your router.
