Here are the steps to set up ControlD on your Linksys router.
Keep in mind that Linksys routers use legacy DNS at the moment.
Open the router interface by navigating to it in your browser. In most cases you can reach it via
Log into your router with the admin password.
If you are prompted to log in with email, choose the Local Access option at the bottom and you will get the router password option:
Click Connectivity in the Router Settings sidebar.
Select the Local Network tab.
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:
The DHCP Server section on the right will contain the Static DNS fields you need. Linksys lets you configure 3 DNS resolvers but you can use just one or two if you prefer.
In this case we will use just one resolver which is the IP you chose in the last step.
Enter that IP in the Static DNS field. If the fields are greyed out, make sure the DHCP Server option at the top is Enabled.
Finally, scroll to the bottom of the page and press Apply.
Press OK to confirm.
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.
