  3. Within the Network Configuration screen you will need to first Ensure the Connection that is used to connect to your router is Highlighted on the left. You should then Enter your DNS server into the box labelled DNS Server. For OpenDNS this is 208.67.222.222 or 208.67.220.220. Alternatively if you are not using OpenDNS, Freeola's DNS server is 195.74.113.58 or 195.74.113.62.
