To begin, open the “Network and Sharing Center” by right-clicking the internet icon in your task bar and then choosing “Open Network and sharing Center”
or by opening the Control Panel and searching for “Network and Sharing Center”.
Then, on the menu on the left, click “Change adapter settings.” In the newly opened Window, right-click the adapter which you are using to connect to the internet and select “Properties”. You might be asked to confirm admin priviledges now, so click “Yes” if that is the case.
In the Properties, scroll down until you see “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” — select that and then click “Properties.”
In the TCP/IPv4 Properties, check “Use the following DNS server addresses:” and then insert up to two IPv4 addresses of the DNS server. Once you’re done, click “OK.”
If you also have IPv6 addresses for the DNS server, feel free to select “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPV6)” and repeat the previous step but imagine “IPv6” instead of “IPv4”.
