Before you change Tomato DNS server addresses
It is recommended that you record your current Tomato router settings before configuring it to use KeepSolid SmartDNS service. You may need this information if you decide to switch back to your original settings in the future.
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.
How to configure your Tomato router with KeepSolid SmartDNS
- Log in to the Admin Panel of your Tomato router.
- In the Basic section, click Network.
- Navigate to the Static DNS Settings and enter the addresses of KeepSolid SmartDNS servers:
European DNS - 184.108.40.206
US DNS - 220.127.116.11
Note: In order to reach better DNS resolution speed, we recommend to use the DNS server closest to your physical location as the Primary DNS on your Tomato router, and the other one as the Secondary DNS.
- Save the new settings.
- Proceed to Advanced > DHCP/DNS settings.
- Find and disable the option Use received DNS with user-entered DNS.
- Check the box in front of Use internal DNS.
- Save the settings and reboot your device to apply all the changes.
Note: For your device to have access to KeepSolid SmartDNS service, its IP address needs to be registered in our system. Whenever your IP address changes, our service stops working for you. To get everything up and running again and let our service identify your Tomato router, make sure to update your IP address in your User Office or KeepSolid SmartDNS app.
How to block Google DNS on Tomato router
Some applications on such devices as Chromecast, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV, Play Station, Xbox 360, and Samsung Smart TVs with Tizen OS are set to use Google DNS by default. Regardless of the device connected to your Tomato router, we always recommend you to block Google DNS (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124). For this, follow just a few simple steps below:
- Log in to your Tomato router Admin Panel.
- Click Advanced > DHCP/DNS.
- On the DHCP/DNS tab, check the box in front of the field Intercept DNS port 53.
- Press Save.
Now all DNS queries will be routed via the Tomato DNS servers you’ve manually set on the router before.
