Additional DNS servers

To add an additional DNS server, in the web interface of the router, go to the 'Internet safety' page, then to the 'DNS configuration' tab and click on '+ Add server'.

In the 'DNS server address' field, type the IP address of the DNS server (in our example, this is the public DNS server from Google 8.8.8.8) and then click 'Save'.

The DNS servers added here will be used on devices that do not have an Internet safety service applied.

You can add the use of additional DNS servers for specific domains. For example:

NOTE: Important! The logic behind Keenetic's DNS is that requests are sent to all DNS servers at its disposal, including both those obtained from an ISP and those manually entered. And the answer is used from whichever DNS server comes fastest.

TIP: Tip:

Sometimes you need to identify which DNS server your requests go through. For example, you can do this with online services like https://www.dnsleaktest.com or https://www.dnsleaktest.com
