TP-Link Routers - How to Set Up DNS Filters

Note: For standard DNS, access is controlled by IP address. This is to prevent abuse of our servers by bad actors. When you sign in on the FreeFiltering website, your IP address is automatically whitelisted. Before changing your router's DNS settings, just make sure you sign in from a device on your WiFi first so that your house's IP is added to your account. You can always manually add/remove IPs in account management also.

Step 1
Sign into your TP-Link router's admin page at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1, depending on which model you have.

Step 2
Choose the DHCP option from the menu on the left.

Step 3
Click the DHCP submenu option called DHCP Settings.

Step 4
In the Primary DNS spot, put the address of your 1st  "Standard DNS Server".  This address can be found on your "Settings" page (e.g. 35.231.153.40 - the number of digits may vary).

Step 5
In the Secondary DNS spot, put the address of your 2nd "Standard DNS Server".  (e.g. 34.74.96.85)

Step 6
Click Save at the bottom of the page to save the settings.

Step 7
Whichever computer(s) or device(s) you're using should be restarted so that it can reconnect to your router and get the new DNS information.
