Change the DNS server address

Now it will be possible to change the DNS server address in Windows. The options "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" will always be checked by default. If not, it is recommended that you write down the registered DNS server to be able to undo the changes in case of making a mistake during the configuration.

To be able to enter the DNS server address manually, click "Use the following DNS server addresses" and enter the address you want. If, for example, you want to use Google's DNS server, copy the address into the "Preferred DNS server" field and the address into the "Alternate DNS server" box. In theory it is not necessary to fill in the second field, as this entry is only valid when there are problems with the preferred DNS server. It is important that all the settings at the top, that is, the IP addresses, are not modified, even when there are numbers in the boxes.

By clicking on the "Accept" button you will confirm the changes made to the DNS server.

Note: if instead of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) you use Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), you will have to replace the IP addresses of the DNS server. The public IPv6 addresses of Google's DNS server are:

2001: 4860: 4860 :: 8888
2001: 4860: 4860 :: 8844
