If your ISP is having issues with its DNS service, switching to OpenDNS' DNS will get you back online in just a few quick steps. Follow the instructions for your operating system or router below.

D-Link Wireless routers have a convenient Setup Wizard to walk you through the router configuration. To set up a D-Link router, you connect the router to your modem, connect a computer to the network and run the Setup Wizard. The process differs slightly depending on the type of network connection you use. Create a list of MAC addresses that you would either like to allow or deny access to your network. Computers that have obtained an IP address from the router's DHCP server will be in the DHCP Client List. Select a device from the drop down menu, then click the arrow to add that device's MAC address to the list.

If you have friends, family, or colleagues who have the same ISP as you, send them this info to help them get back online. Text them or call them with the IP address http://208.69.38.205.
Or, tell your Twitter followers that they can get back online by following the instructions on http://208.69.38.205.

Generic Router

  1. Open the preferences for your router.

    Often, the preferences are set in your web browser, via a URL with numbers (example: http://192.168.0.1). You may need a password.

    If you're like us, and you set the router password long ago and cannot remember it now, you can often reset the password to the manufacturer default by pressing a button on the router itself.

    Or preferences may be set via specific application for your router, which you installed on your computer when you added the router.

  2. Find the DNS server settings.
    Scan for the letters DNS next to a field which allows two or three sets of numbers, each broken into four groups of one to three numbers.
  3. Put in the OpenDNS server addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, as your DNS server settings and save/apply.
