This guide applies to all Mikrotik routers running Router OS.
Make sure your DNS is set to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. Follow the Mikrotik guide here if you are in doubt
For Windows users
- Login to Mikrotik router using Winbox tool
- Click "New Terminal" button from the left side menu

For Mac users
Winbox tool is not available for Mac users. Mac users could either login to router via web or SSH into the device and perform step 3 above.
The first step of troubleshooting should always be to restart the device(s) and router. Then check your setup status in your SmartDNS dashboard.
