This tutorial will show you how to set up Smart DNS on Android TV Box using the SmartyDNS services. If you don’t have a SmartyDNS account, you can try our services for free for 3 days.
Here are the steps you should follow:
If you have validated your IP address, skip this step and go to Part II of this tutorial.
Click the Validate IP button (1).
Your IP address have to be validated every time it changes. If Smart DNS is not functioning, make sure your IP is validated by following steps 1-4.
If you see the “Your IP address has been validated!” message, you can go to Part II from this tutorial.
You can Validate a specific IP address (2). Use it to validate an IP address different to your current IP address. For example, enter your real IP when you are accessing this page while being connected to VPN or enter your home IP while you are at work.
Another option to validate your IP address is to Validate your IP using a web address (3). By choosing this option you don’t have to sign in to your account on our website each time you want to validate the IP address. By adding this link to your browser favorites / bookmarks your IP address will be validated each time you load this URL into your browser.
It is important to not share the Validate IP Link with anyone! It is particular and unique for every single client. If you give or share it with other people, your Smart DNS service won’t be working.
This has to be done only once.
Go to “Settings” (1).
Choose “Wi-Fi” (2).
Choose your Wi-Fi network (3).
Choose “Advanced Options” (4).
Choose “IP settings” (5).
Choose “Static” (6).
You have to get an IP address from the same IP range as your router. To do that just use your router’s IP and change the last group of digits. For example, if your router’s IP is 192.168.1.1 you should set your Android TV Box to something like 192.168.1.100 (7). You can notice that first three groups of digits remained the same and only the last one changed.
Click on “Next” (8).
For the “Gateway” field (9) enter the IP address of your router.
Click “Next” (10).
Enter 24 for the “Enter Network Prefix Length” field (11).
