KeepSolid SmartDNS team highly recommends you to save your original DNS settings before you start making any changes on your Chromecast device. You’ll need them in case if you want to switch back to your original DNS settings.
Step 1. Setup KeepSolid SmartDNS on your router
Unfortunately, we aren’t able to manually change DNS settings directly on the Google Chromecast streaming device. That’s why you should setup our SmartDNS app on your router first. Check out our manuals to do so.
Step 2. Block Google DNS on your Chromecast streaming device
Since all the Chromecast streaming devices are programmed to communicate with Google DNS servers, namely 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, the next important step is to block these servers on your Google Chromecast. Otherwise, you won’t be able to unblock any US and EU streaming services. That’s why you should check out our manuals on how to setup our SmartDNS on various routers, choose your router, and follow the instructions on how to block Google DNS on your router.
Note: In case if you have manually setup Google DNS settings for any other device like your smartphone, the Google DNS on this device and internet connection may not work when connecting to the router. To change DNS settings for this gadget, please check out our manuals and follow the instructions for your device.
Step 3. Test your static router
This step is a must to check if you have blocked Google DNS correctly. To do so, you should test your router via a ping test.
Step 4. Restart your router and Chromecast device
That’s the final step and it is a must to put your changes into effect. Restart your Chromecast device and unblock US and EU services from anywhere. Now you know how to manually change DNS settings for Google Chromecast streaming device and can easily access Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Rai.TV, and some other services with KeepSolid SmartDNS.
