The same applies whether dial-up or some other connection type.  It's
your connect scripts that you'd rewrite, nothing to do with getting them
(your ISP) to change their settings.

How do you connect?  Is it a command?  If so, see if it's a script, and
see what other files it refers to.  You should find something that lets
you customise things.

If it's your DHCP client script that resets your DNS servers, then
customise your DCHP client configuration file.
