Change DNS Settings in Ubuntu

Few days ago, I’ve switched again to ubuntu. I will show you how to change your DNS settings in a Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop.

If you want to use a custom DNS server for your connection(like I do) i.e. OpenDNS, Here’s what to do:

1. On the systray, Right Click on the connection icon, and click Edit Connections.
2. On the popped out window, Click on your desired connection and click Edit.

3. Then, click on the tab IPv4 Settings.
4. On the combobox, select Automatic (DHCP) addresses only, then at the textbox labeled DNS Servers, put your preferred DNS address(both primary and alternative) separated by a comma.

There you go! Happy Browsing..! 😀
