  2. Open your web browser and enter your router's IP in the address bar.

Please read: Some D-link routers have an option under Setup/Network Settings called enable DNS relay. Please make sure that this option is not enabled. The same goes for unicasting if you have this feature.

Please un-link the router from the myDLink service as this service will bypass and DNS settings you make.


The first step of troubleshooting should always be to restart the device(s) and router. Then check your setup status in your SmartDNS dashboard
