Important notice before you change AirPort DNS settings

  • To unblock streaming services with our KeepSolid SmartDNS app, you have to register your IP address. Check out how to manage your IP address in the KeepSolid SmartDNS App and your KeepSolid User Office here
  • Also, please make sure that your AirPort Extreme wireless router device is not set to bridge mode, as DNS changes won’t work. Instead, change DNS settings on the router AirPort Extreme is connected to, or disable bridge mode to proceed with AirPort Extreme setup.

6. Restart devices connected to the AirPort Extreme, so that they use KeepSolid SmartDNS configurations.  

Note: Access to KeepSolid SmartDNS service is provided basing on the IP address, that you register in our system. And whenever your IP address changes, our service will stop working for you. To get everything up and running again, please update your IP address in KeepSolid SmartDNS app or via your User Office.
