How to Set Up KeepSolid SmartDNS on Xbox One

Xbox One is the next generation home video game console from Microsoft. Besides being a game console, Xbox One lets its users listen to music, play DVDs, Blu-ray discs, watch movies and TV shows, and more. It also provides access to a variety of services like Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix, which allows direct streaming of videos onto a television.   

However, the number of apps on your Xbox One varies depending on your location. What’s more, apps like Netflix offer considerably different media libraries from region to region. Fortunately, there is a way to overcome this restriction and extend the range of media available to you.  

KeepSolid SmartDNS technology conceals your real location and provides access to geo-restricted content regardless of where you are. What you need to do is just change DNS on Xbox One. With this easy tutorial, you’ll find out how to set up Xbox One using KeepSolid SmartDNS configurations and open up the whole world of streaming media. 

Before you start your Xbox One setup

It is important to write down your current Xbox One DNS settings before you switch to our DNS servers. You will need this information in case you want to get back to your original settings later. In case your original configuration was set to “Automatic”, simply switch your Xbox One DNS settings back to “Automatic”.

How to change Xbox One DNS settings

Follow the below simple steps to do your Xbox One setup:

  1. Navigate to your Xbox One home screen and go to Settings
  2. Alternatively, you could use your Xbox One controller – press the Options button.
  3. On the Settings screen, select Settings.  
  4. Select Network.
  5. On the Network Settings screen of your Xbox One, choose Advanced Settings
  6. Scroll down to DNS settings and select Manual.
  7. In the Primary and Secondary DNS fields, enter the addresses of KeepSolid SmartDNS servers. Here is the list of our DNS servers for Xbox One:

    European DNS - 62.210.136.158 
    US DNS - 69.162.67.202 

    Note: As the Primary DNS for your Xbox One, we recommend you to use the closest server to your real location, and use the other DNS server as the Secondary DNS.
     
  8. After you provide KeepSolid SmartDNS settings, proceed to the next screen and press “B” on your Xbox One controller to save the changes. 

    Note: There is a known bug on some Xbox One devices, which doesn’t let users save DNS settings, as the Xbox One reverts to 0.0.0.0. It is not possible for us to do anything about this bug. Please contact Xbox One support if you face this issue. 

  9. Once the your Xbox One DNS settings are changed, reboot your device. Just turn it off and turn back on.

    Note: 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. 

That’s it! You’ve successfully configured your Xbox One to use KeepSolid SmartDNS service. Now you can easily unblock geo-restricted content and enjoy a wider range of videos no matter where you are.
