It’s only necessary to set up Smart DNS Proxy one time in order to use it. After you set up Smart DNS proxy, you don’t have to follow these steps. Your connection will automatically use the correct DNS settings.

It’s very simple to set up Smart DNS Proxy with most routers and modems. You can set your preferred DNS to use Privado’s DNS proxy IP addresses, then it’ll be ready to go.


1. Go to your router Admin Panel. 

Open a web browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari and go to the router’s IP address. On your TP-Link Router, your admin panel may be found at one of the following addresses:



2. Login to your router Admin Panel.

Your default username will be “admin” and the default password will be “password.” Keep in mind that these are all lower case. Be sure to change your router password when you get into the admin panel so that other people won’t be able to access your router settings.

When you find and enter the correct credentials, you’ll be in the router dashboard.



3. Click on  DHCP on the left and select DHCP Settings from the sub menu.



4. Change the Primary and Secondary DNS.

Replace the Primary and Secondary DNS to the following:





4. Click the Save button.



5. Restart your Router.
