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 Linksys router admin page (http://192.168.1.1 or http://myrouter.local).
2. Login to your router Admin Panel.
Your default password will be “admin.” Keep in mind that this is 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 Connectivity on the left side of the screen, then select the Local Network tab.
4. Change the Primary and Secondary DNS.
Find the “DHCP Server” section.
Set the Primary and Secondary Static DNS to the following:
Static DNS 1: 18.104.22.168
Static DNS 2: 22.214.171.124
5. Click the Apply button, then OK.
5. Restart your Router.
We recommend that you restart your router whenever you make any settings changes. Many routers will automatically restart when you save new settings, but just in case it’s a good idea to manually restart anyway.
