[Network] Changing DNS Complete Tutorial Reply:11| View:2078

        This guide will give you step by step do change DNS in Windows. The guide will be based on windows 7, but it should have the same concept with other version of windows.
       
WARNING: PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTION THOROUGHLY, IN SOME CASE YOUR ROUTER/MODEM/ISP NEED YOU TO USE CERTAIN DNS SETTINGS, THAT WILL MEANS YOU MUST NOT CHANGE THE DNS.

        Our Goals:
        - Fix dns error
        - Use google dns (trusted)

        What is dns?
        - to summarize it, DNS is features that allow you to search web using www.<website name>.<postfix>. so instead of using 173.194.126.82 to open google we use www.google.com to open them. DNS is the one responsible to managed them.

        Why change/use DNS?
        - If your pc have no dns set up yet, that means you will be using ISP (Internet Service Provider) dns. This dns sometimes cause issue by blocking connection to certain site (includes loa).
        - If you have dns already, it\'s mostly up to you. But just remember google dns block nothing and used by most of user, also in some case bad dns may cause more delay in connection.

        What to close?
        - All program that requires internet are suggested to be closed.
        - In case there a program that you cannot close, you will need to restart your pc (or network adapter for advanced user)

        Step 1 - Finding the network icon in taskbar and open the network page.
        Network Icon is this:
       
        Taskbar is the right side of this(startbar) :
       
        Right click in the icon and this option will appear
       
        Select and click Open Network and Sharing Center and this screen will appears
       
        Now We are done for step 1, lets continue to step 2

        Step 2 - Opening the network properties from network page
        Click the highlighted area, as picture below shows
       
        After clicking the highlighted area, the following screen will popped up
       
        Select and click the highlighted button (properties) above, and the following screen will appear
       
        note: I heavily suggest to un-check Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) unless you used it (IF YOU NOT SURE, IGNORE THIS)
        In screen above, select and double click the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) (for people who use v6, this guide will only provide v4 dns, you need to search v6 dns on your own).
        This following screen will appears
       
        Please note that in this step, this is the most common setting used for most of people. In some case the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway are filled, we gonna ignore those. Just make sure your setting use Obtain DNS server address automatically[color, If your setting have some dns inputted and you doesn\'t know why, please ask someone with knowledge or just post here.

        IF YOUR SETTING FOR DNS IS EXACTLY AS ABOVE OBTAIN DNS SERVER ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY (IGNORE THE IP ADDRESS), PLEASE CONTINUE TO STEP 3, OTHERWISE ASK HERE OR SOMEONE WITH KNOWLEDGE.

        Step 3 - Setting the DNS
        If you have read the warning above and decided to continue, please see the image below
       
        Select use the following DNS server address and fill exactly as above.
        Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8 (or your own dns)
        Alternate DNS server: 4.4.4.4 (or your own dns)
        And we are finish using/changing dns. Congratulation, you just change your DNS to google dns.
       
This is end of step 3, please continue to step 4 for removing the trace of old dns.

        Step 4 - Removing the old DNS leftover
        You need to open command prompt, there are multiple ways to achieve this:
        - Using Run(windows logo + R)
        - From starbar, type command prompt or cmd

        If you open cmd/command prompt properly, the following screen will appear
       
        From image above, type the sentence highlighted above which is ipconfig /flushdns, you need to right click to paste, cannot use CTRL+V.
        After typing as above, press enter and this following screen will appears
       
        You can repeat this 2-5 times to make sure there is no trace left. (this is not removing cache)

        And we are done, your DNS change should reflected on everything that uses internet now.

        IN CASE OF PROBLEMS!!
        - Do till step 2 is finished, and use Obtain DNS server address automatically.
        - This will restore to your old settings

        Or even better
        Get MAC and put win on, i know so many people doing just that.
        When i ask them why they all say MAC is more secure but they use WIN on MAC.
