Once you have logged into the router, click the Advanced tab at the top.
You will see some new options on the left side of the page. Click Network and then open the Internet section.

TP-Link allows you to configure two DNS resolvers but you can use just one if you prefer, that is what we'll be doing here.
Once you have selected the DNS IP you want to use, you can enter it in the Primary and Secondary DNS fields.
Finally, press Save below the settings.
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.
