How to Setup KeepSolid SmartDNS on Philips Smart TV?
Important Notes Before You Start Changing Philips DNS Server
If you use Philips Smart TV based on Android TV or Android TV Box, you should check out this manual.
The process of setting up of DNS for your Philips Smart TV is not too complex. You can easily do it by yourself. However, before you start making any changes via your Philips DNS server, you should save your original DNS settings. You’ll need them in case if you want to switch back to the original 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.
We recommend you to block Google DNS servers (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) on your router, otherwise you may not be able to bypass geo-restrictions and access the desired content.
How to Change Philips DNS Server
First thing first, you should find out the IP of your router, netmask (subnet), and the IP range of your router. This information is essential for step 6. When you find out this data you can go to step 2.
To find your router IP on Windows you should go to the Program Command Prompt > enter ipconfig > click Enter. The IP address from the default gateway is the one you need.
To find your router IP on OS X you should go to System Preferences > then go to Network > select the type of your connection (WiFi or Ethernet) > click Advanced > go to TCP/IP. Now you will see the routers IP.
Now you should start your Philips Smart TV and press the Home button on your TV remote.
Then go to Setup.
Now choose Network Settings.
After that, you should go to the Network Configuration and set to Static IP.
Now you should fill in the following fields:
IP address: Here you should fill in an IP from the same IP range as your router has (the needed info from step 1). In order to do so, you should use your router’s IP but change the last group of numbers. For instance, your router has an IP like 291.279.2.2, you should enter something like 291.279.2.222.
Netmask: Fill in this field with the mask of your router’s network (usually - 255.255.255.0 but if it does not work you should consult step 1 for your local info)
Gateway: Field for your router’s real IP address.
DNS 1: You should fill in this field with the primary SmartDNS IP address for Philips Smart TV (126.96.36.199 - EU DNS or 188.8.131.52 - US DNS). Note: You should use the closest server to your real location as Primary DNS server for Philips Smart TV.
DNS 2: Last but certainly not least, you should enter secondary SmartDNS IP address for Philips Smart TV (184.108.40.206 - EU DNS or 220.127.116.11 - US DNS).Note: You should use the second closest server as the secondary ones for Philips Smart TV.
