Changing the DNS the Frontier router (NVG468MQ or similar versions) is pretty simple. In the following steps, we will show you how to change DNS in there to enable the free parental control filters provided by CleanBrowsing:
Step 1: Login to your router administrative panel
First, go to http://192.168.254.254/cgi-bin/connconfig.ha . If you router is at a different IP Address, switch 192.168.254.254 for the router IP address. Your username and password are written at the back of the router.
Step 2: Connection Settings
If that page doesn’t open directly, click on “Advanced” at the top and look for “Connection Settings”. You should see a page like this one:
Change the Primary DNS Address to 126.96.36.199 and the Secondary DNS Address to 188.8.131.52. If you are using one of our paid plans, change the two IP addresses for the ones we provide in your dashboard.
Step 3: Saving your changes
Once you are done changing the DNS, just click on “Apply”. That will save your changes and you are done.
It may take a few minutes for your computer DHCP Lease to get the new DNS, but you should be good to go. If you disable your Wifi and re-enable, it will force it right away. To test, try to visit badexample.com and you should be blocked (getting domain not founder error on your browser).
