    How to find and change the DNS

    On my Android Eeepad tablet I can change the DNS by long-pressing the router id in WI-FI settings, then select the DNS1 field and insert a new DNS.

    But the hard-press routine doesn't work with my Galaxy SII. I can't find a way to get at the DNS setting. The only option that pops up is Forget Network.

    I want to set up my unrooted SII with a DNS from unotelly.com so that I can use their system to let me access Netflix USA from Canada. Although I can achieve access while at home merely by changing the DNS setting in my router, I'm not always on my home network and would like the SII to be able to access the unotelly DNS when I'm elsewhere.

    How can I find and change the DNS?

    Thanks.

    Try 'setDNS' from Google Play.

    Thank you.
    I tried that but it timed out after 24 hours. I saw a SETDNSPRO version but it seemed to be aimed at owners who had rooted their phone.

    Reckon the easiest way is to use an app, how about DNS Setting.
    Doesn't have the time out of setDNS (had forgotten that it did that)

    Open Wi-Fi settings. Press the menu button. Press advanced. Scroll to the bottom. DNS 1 is there.
