Hey, this is Charles Henson here. Today, I'm going to show you how to set up Google DNS on your router. The reason you would want to do this is DNS acts like a phone book so by using DNS from Google, we're able to go straight to the source to find the destination for what you are searching for. So you want to open up Internet Explorer or Safari and you want to log into your router. Once you are logged into the router you'll want to go into the manual setup and click on your internet connection. We'll want to go in and run a manual internet connection setup on this and here we have two choices for a primary and secondary DNS services. Google's primary DNS is 8.8.8.8 and Google's secondary DNS server, 8.8.4.4 and then you want to save the settings here and you want to reboot your router. So now that we have Google set up as our DNS, we're right into the heart of Google. So it's going to speed up our internet browsing, it's going to be safe and secure so that we know that we're going to get the response back from the DNS server that we queried in the first place.
