Before you change your TP-Link DNS settings

How to change DNS on TP-Link router

To change TP-Link DNS server settings and configure your router to work with KeepSolid SmartDNS service, follow the few easy steps below. 

Some TP-Link routers allow you to configure our DNS on WAN and DHCP. This guide covers both settings. 

  1. Open your TP-Link router Admin Panel, which is usually accessible via http://192.168.1.1, http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.2.1, and log in. 
  2. Navigate to Network on the left menu of your TP-Link router. 
  3. Check the box Use These DNS servers.
  4. In the Primary DNS and Secondary DNS fields, enter the addresses of KeepSolid SmartDNS servers:

    European DNS - 62.210.136.158 
    US DNS - 69.162.67.202 

    Note: We recommend to use the DNS server closest to your real location as the Primary DNS server and the other server as the secondary one for your TL-Link router. This will give you better speed of DNS resolution.

  5. Click Save
  6. To enter our DNS addresses on DHCP, proceed to DHCP on the left menu.  
  7. Type the addresses of KeepSolid SmartDNS servers in the Primary DNS and Secondary DNS fields: 

    European DNS - 62.210.136.158 
    US DNS - 69.162.67.202 

    Note: As recommended above, to reach better speed of DNS resolution, make sure to use the DNS server closest to your real location as the Primary DNS server and the other server as the secondary one for your TL-Link router.

  8. Press Save.
  9. Reboot your router for the new TP-Link DNS server settings to apply.  

    Note: Access to KeepSolid SmartDNS service is provided basing on your IP address, which you need to register in our system. Whenever your IP address changes, our service will stop working for you. In this case, please update your registered IP address via your User Office or KeepSolid SmartDNS app to get everything up and running again on your TP-Link router. 

That’s it! You’ve successfully configured your TP-Link router to use KeepSolid SmartDNS service and can now access any content you want.
