Welcome to the Freeola Support pages. This guide is designed to take you though the basic steps for changing your DNS server settings within the Philips CGA5722 router. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.
These instructions apply to the Philips CGA5722 ADSL Modem Router. The settings may also apply to other Philips routers.
Firstly you will need to Log-in to your Router Control Panel, this is a control panel held within the router itself and can be accessed by visiting the router's address using a web browser (such as Microsoft Edge, Firefox or Chrome).
The default address for a Philips router is 192.168.2.1, however this may differ if it has been changed manually by yourself or your network administrator.
Bring up a Web Browser and Type http://192.168.2.1 into the Address Bar at the top of the screen.
You should now be prompted for a username and password to log-in to the router. At the log-in prompt, enter admin as the Log-in Username, and Your Log-in Password into the other box provided and select Log-in. If your log-in is successful, you should be taken to the router status page.
If your router was configured by Freeola or the router has recently been factory reset, the password would have been set to 'admin'. Alternatively, if you, or your network administrator originally configured the router, you may have set your own login password.
Next, select ADSL/Internet Settings from the menu, then DNS from the sub-categories. This will take you to the DNS configuration page, as shown below.
Once logged in you will need to select Config to be taken to the main configuration screen for your router, this should default to the Network Settings page.
Enter the required DNS Servers into the boxes provided. For OpenDNS these are 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11, Google DNS are 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
Select Save Settings to save the settings so that they are stored. You may need to reboot the router for the changes to take effect.
Once reconnected, in order to ensure your new DNS settings are working correctly, you should attempt to bring up a web page, for example http://freeola.com.
