Important: On stock Android firmwares, the greyed out details are only an example, you will need to key in the details manually based on the network you are connected on.

The device network details that we need are the IP Address and Gateway. If you are not sure where to find these, please follow the instructions from the links below:


How to find your Android device IP address


How to find your Default Network Gateway


Note: Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any way to check the Default Gateway address directly from the device unless by downloading a 3rd party app. However, some versions of Android firmware populates these fields automatically so you can just proceed to enter the DNS 1 and DNS 2 fields.

Once you've confirmed the above details, enter them into the appropriate fields as such:

IP address: Your device IP address
Gateway: Your network default gateway ( router IP address )
Network Prefix length 24
DNS 1 and DNS 2 The DNS addresses that appeared on the browser earlier



Note: Just to reiterate, the details above are just an example on our device, this will be different for your devices, please take a note of them first before editing.


Tap Save to save the changes.
