Change DNS Server Settings in Router
How to change DNS server settings in router?
A router is a device that promotes data packets through networks. Routers perform data 'traffic direction' functions on the Internet. A router is a microprocessor-controlled device that is connected to two or more data lines from different networks. When a data packet approaches one of the lines, the router interprets the address information in the packet to decide its ultimate destination. Then, using information in its routing table, it directs the packet to the next network on its journey. A data packet is typically passed from router to router through the networks of the Internet until it gets to its destination computer.
