By changing the DNS server, you’re looking at a few benefits. They can be faster, more stable, and safer compare to the default DNS server provided by TM. I’ve provided some of the most popular DNS Servers in the tutorial below. You can choose to use DNS provided by Google, CloudFlare, or OpenDNS.

If you looking for a more family-type DNS, use OpenDNS FamilyShield DNS Server below. This DNS Server is for users who want to keep their children from seeing inappropriate images on their computers. This DNS is free to use and you don’t need a registered network to use FamilyShield.

Note: I’m using the default router provided by TM which is TP-Link Archer C1200 wireless router.
