If I set them manually they show correctly, but when set to "obtain automatically" it shows the gateway only?






If its set manually you will see exactly what the DNS is ...ie: 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 example.

So I have open DNS set in my router as the DNS, so why when I do an ipconfig/all is it show my DNS as 192.168.0.1(gateway?)

Your gateway (your router) forwards DNS to the DNS you configured in the router. Your computer connects to the router, and then the router forwards DNS traffic to the configured servers. Some routers are able to configure the DHCP lease and hands out the DNS servers you've configured right to the client. Other routers simply hand out the gateway IP as DNS and then forwards traffic for you.
