Change DNS on a DIR-825 router (D-Link)

These instructions will provide guidance on how to configure CleanBrowsing on a D-Link Router device, specifically using images from the DIR-825 router. You can find the user guide for this device here: https://eu.dlink.com/-/media/Consumer_Products/DIR/DIR%20825/Manual/DIR825C1manual11301130EN.pdf

Step 1: Access the router

You access the router by navigating to the local IP address in your browser. It’s often 192.168.0.1If this IP doesn’t work you can use some of the defaults we provide on our generic router configuration page: Generic Router Instructions

You will need to log in using your administrator credentials.

Step 2: Navigate to DNS Section in the Router Dashboard

Click on the Manual Internet Connection Options button.

The DNS section is located in the Dynamic IP (DHCP) Internet Connection Type section.

Step 3: Update DNS Settings

In the DHCP Connections section you will add your CleanBrowsing IP’s to the Primary / Secondary DNS Server settings.

The CleanBrowsing Family IP’s are:

  1. 185.228.169.168
  2. 185.228.168.168

Note: If you have a paid plan use the DNS IPs provided in your account.

The final step is to save the change by clicking on Save.
