How to change DNS on a Hitron CGNM Router
Adding CleanBrowsing to a Hitron CGNM Router
These instructions will provide guidance on how to configure CleanBrowsing on your Hitron CGNM router. You can find the user guide for this device here: http://gditechnology.com/manuals/Hitron-CGNM_2250_User-Guide.pdf
Step 1: Access the router
To get started configuring the Hitron CGNM router you need to log into your router. If you are already logged in you can skip this step.
You can navigate to 192.168.0.1 in your browser. This is the IP the router will configure by default when it's connected to your ISP gateway. If 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
From the Quick Wizard Home Page, click the drop-down menu on the top right corner.
Click on Basic
Step 3: Update DNS Settings
Under Basic Settings, click DNS.
On DNS Settings, click Manual.
Enter the primary DNS server address in the box labeled DNS1. This is the address that is always used first.
Key in the secondary DNS server address in the box that reads DNS2. This becomes a backup and is only used if the first can't be located.
Finally, click the Save Changes button before you exit.Note: If you have a paid plan use the DNS IPs provided in your account.
Step 4: Test DNS Configuration
The final step is to verify the DNS configuration is working. You can do this by using DNS Leak Test.
It can take 10 - 15 minutes for the change to take affect, be patient. The additional time is the time required for your computer DHCP Lease to get the new DNS. 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 (getting domain not founder error on your browser).
