Changing the DNS on a Netgear router is pretty simple. In the following steps, we will show you how to change DNS in there to enable the free parental control filters provided by CleanBrowsing:
- First, go to http://www.routerlogin.com or the IP address of your router. Login with your username and password. The default user name is “admin”.
- Choose the “Internet” option on the right left side.
- Scroll down a bit until you find “Use these DNS Servers”. In there, you can add 188.8.131.52 as the Primary DNS and 184.108.40.206 as the secondary DNS.
- Click Apply. And that’s it. It may take a few minutes for your computer DHCP Lease to get the new DNS, but you should be good to go. If you disable your Wifi and re-enable, it will force it right away. To test, try to visit badexample.com and you should be blocked.
