As I've already posted, this seems entirely to depend on your ISP. You may be one of the lucky...
My ISP does seem to keep even the distribution of Dynamic IPs in hand, or I have to throw in an extra router... And no way to change my DNS server. Thats the way it goes in Belgium...
And ACTA will be worse even.
"While the Airport Extreme N accepts custom DNS configuration (e.g., OpenDNS) it does not distribute the configured DNS to DHCP clients. I've tested with both Windows and OS X clients and both are not receiving custom DNS from the Airport."
This seams to mean you even have to set your devices to manual IPs. What a Jungle!

The DNS (Domain Name System) is the table with the name of the site you (as ehmac.ca) with the Internet IP address of the server where the site ( Without DNS, you would must consider the IP numbers for each site to remember - not good. DNS is a distributed system, there are many DNS servers, and they are linked together to share / the latest updates and new Internet addresses to work.
