Primary/Secondary DNS Server field validation issue in Setup Wizard
When clearing out the Primary/Secondary DNS Server fields in the Setup Wizard it causes the validation to fail. An empty field might need to be considered valid to prevent that.

When I run through the setup wizard with Allow DNS servers to be overridden by DHCP/PPP on WAN unchecked in

it will accept blank fields for the primary server, secondary server, or both. Validation still fails as expected for invalid addresses like test, 0, 256.256.256.256, etc.
Unless we want to require at least one valid server here, this can be marked as resolved.

The default config (With DNS Resolver enabled and in Resolver mode) does not require any DNS servers to be present under System > General or in the wizard. So accepting blank DNS servers is not only allowed, it is the most desirable behavior.
In the future we may want to add a checkbox to the wizard to allow the user to choose forwarding mode here, but that's unrelated to this as it is now.
