Press the Win + R key combination on your keyboard.
Type cmd in the Run box that appeared, and press Enter or click Ok.
Wait for a command execution and find the information about the main gateway:
In this particular case it is 192.168.0.1
Then you must specify the address of an alternate DNS server(e.g. Google public dns 126.96.36.199)
To configure your network using the Windows UI, you need to perform the following steps:
Go to Control Panel, click on Network and Internet, then View network status and tasks. This will bring up the Networking and Sharing Center.
The next step can be done in one of two ways:
- If the network connection that is going to be altered is currently connected, it will be shown under “Connections.” Click on this connection, then click Properties.
- Click on Change Adapter Settings (shown below in the column on the left) to bring up a list of the available network connections.
Right-click on a connection you will modify — this will bring up a context menu and press Properties.
This will bring up the Properties dialog box for the specific connection you selected, which is shown below. Click (once) on theInternet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) item in the list, then select Properties.
Here, the things that need to be configured are static DNS server addresses. We’ll use the main gateway address 192.168.0.1 as the preferred DNS server and the 188.8.131.52 as the alternate one, which is Google’s public DNS server.
After entering all that, click OK; configuration is now complete.
