Follow the steps below to configure ControlD on your D-Link router.
Keep in mind that D-Link routers use legacy DNS at the moment.
Open the D-Link router interface by navigating to it in your browser. By default you can reach it via
Hover over the Settings option at the top and select Internet from the drop-down menu.
Select the “Advanced Settings…” option.
Now determine which DNS resolver you want to use. If you are configuring our free DNS resolvers, you can use these IPs:
If you are configuring a custom DNS resolver, you can find your custom DNS IP in the My Account section:
D-Link allows you to configure two DNS resolvers but you can use just one if you prefer.
The router will use the Primary DNS Server for resolving queries and the Secondary DNS Server as a backup. In this case we'll use the same IP for both.
Once you have selected the DNS IP you want to use, you can enter it in the Primary and Secondary DNS Server fields.
Finally, press Save near the top-right of the page.
Once the router saves the configuration, you are using ControlD on your network!
Keep in mind that if you configure a custom DNS on any of the individual devices connected to this router, those devices will not be using the DNS you configured here.
