Configure DNS

1 Locate the DNS Settings

Navigate to “Setup”, choose “Network Settings”, then select “Network Setup”. Choose the type of connection you have (select either “Wired” or “Wireless”). Continue through the options until you see “Select connection mode”, at this point, choose “Manual”.

2 Change DNS Settings

The “IP address”, “Subnet mask” and “Gateway” fields should already be populated, leave these alone and move down to the DNS field. In the DNS field, enter one of the addresses listed on our Overview page, then select “Finish”.

3 Restart

After changing the DNS settings, turn the WD TV Live device off, then on again (using the power button on the remote control).
