I have to say that I prefer the EU site you mention for checking DNSChanger because it has a privacy disclosure.

One aspect of DNSChanger that is causing problems for some people is the corruption of Wi-fi access points and home routers. As you know, it is possible to remove the infection from a PC but still have the wrong DNS settings in your acess point, although I don't have any statistics on how common this is.

One site that readers may find useful for access point DNS change information is provided by OpenDNS. People who find that their access point has been affected can use these instructions to reset their DNS to OpenDNS or Google Public DNS as you suggest.
