How to Change a Belkin DNS

Save

A DNS server is used to resolve Internet domain names. When your computer is behind a router, you can choose to store the DNS server addresses on the router instead of the computer. This minimizes the need to change the addresses on each computer and device you have manually. If you need to change your network's current DNS, you can do so from within the Belkin's configuration interface. You can access this interface using any Web browser.

  • Open your Web browser. Type "192.168.2.1" in its address bar, and press your "Enter" key. This opens a login screen for your Belkin router.

  • Type "admin" (without the quotes) in the "Password" field, and press "Enter." This logs you in and displays the Belkin's configuration page.

  • Click the "DNS" link located under "Internet WAN" on the left pane.

  • Erase your old DNS from the "DNS Address" and "Secondary DNS Address" field.

  • Type your new primary DNS in the "DNS Address" field, and type the new alternate DNS in the "Secondary DNS Address" field.

  • Click the "Apply Changes" button. This action will quickly reset the router, and apply your new DNS settings.
