Change the DNS on the Xiaomi Mi Box

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Network & Internet
  3. Go to IP Settings and select Static
  4. Change the following:
    • IP address: Enter the first three groups of numbers exactly the same as the IP address of your router. As an example, if your router IP is, then use the IP address or something to that nature. The important part is to change the last digit so you get an IP from the same IP range as the router.
    • Gateway: Enter the IP of your router
    • Network Proxy Length: 24
    • DNS 1:
    • DNS 2:
  5. Save and restart the device


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