Before you change DNS settings on Chromebook
Please make sure to write down your current Chrome OS DNS settings before you switch to our DNS addresses. You will need this information when you need to revert to your original settings. In case the original configurations on your Chromebook were set to Automatic, all you need to do is just change the DNS settings back to Automatic again.
How to change DNS server on Chromebook
- First of all, you need to access your Chromebook Settings. You can do it in two ways described below.
- From the Homepage of your Chrome OS device, click on the menu icon in the top right of the screen and navigate to Settings.
- Alternatively, you can click on the notification tray, and then press the gear-shaped Settings icon.
- Click on your internet connection.
- You’ll see the list of networks. Find your network and click on it again.
- Navigate to Network.
- In the Network section of your Chromebook settings, scroll down and check the box in front of Custom name servers option.
- Enter the addresses of KeepSolid SmartDNS servers in the Custom name servers fields:
European DNS - 188.8.131.52
US DNS - 184.108.40.206
Note: We recommend to use the DNS server closest to your real location as the Primary DNS server (the first field below Custom name servers) and the other DNS address as the secondary one for your Chromebook. This will give you better speed of DNS resolution.
- Close the settings and reboot your Chromebook device.
Note: Whenever your IP address changes, our service will stop working for you. To get everything up and running again, please update your IP address via your User Office or KeepSolid SmartDNS app.
