Important notes before you start changing DNS settings on Vizio Smart TV
- You need to save your original DNS settings before you start making any changes on your Vizio Smart TV device. You’ll need them in case 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.
- Whenever your IP changes, our service will stop working for you. To avoid this, make sure to update your IP address via your User Office or KeepSolid SmartDNS app.
- 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.
