Hi,

Good thing that you already have a screenshot of Network Connections where it has Local Area connection icon is located.

Assigning DNS is usually done if you want to use specific Domain Name Server.

In the screenshots, it has 2 icons for Local Area Connections. You will need to identify which of those 2 icons is the default connection for your Internet.

But basing in your screenshot, what you need to do are the following;

  • Right click on Local Area Connection
  • Left click properties
  • Scroll down a bit and Look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP
  • Hightlight on it, then click on properties
  • Do assign a specific DNS in Manually type DNS server
  • Usually, DNS are 4.2.2.1 up to 6

Just follow me

Double Click

And then this image will appear for you

So tick on " Use the following IP Address" and also on " Use The following DNS server Address" and put your IP addresses in all boxes but  i think the prefered  and alternate ip address for open DNS are 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 then press ok and if you want to change DNS or your IP Address setting press on Advance

Hope these Solution helps you
