Change DNS on a NetGear Orbi Router

These instructions will provide guidance on how to configure CleanBrowsing on your Netgear Orbi router, specifically using images from the Orbi router. You can find the user guide for this device here: https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/RBK50/Orbi_UM_EN.pdf

Step 1: Access the router

You access the router by navigating to routerlogin.com.

You will need to log in using your administrator credentials.

Step 2: Navigate to DNS Section in the Router Dashboard

Click on the SETUP + option

Click on the Internet Setup option
