How to find DNS?

There are several ways to learn DNS. But all of them, in addition to the latter, imply an Internet connection. So, before checking the address, make sure that the Internet is connected to your computer and it works well.

Method one: command line

Need to open a command prompt. To do this, simultaneously press the "Windows" and "R" keys. Before you open the "Run program". In the line you need to enter the command "ipconfig / all". A window with full information about the connection will open, including the DNS address.

You can open the command line in another way. Go to the "Start" menu, look for the "Run" section. In the window that appears, you need to enter the command "cmd", click "Ok" or "Enter". If the steps were performed correctly, you should see a window in which all the necessary information will be displayed, including the DNS address.

Method Two: Network Connection

We offer another way to find out the DNS server. To do this, go to the network connection. The icon is located in the lower right corner. You need to click on this icon with the left mouse button. A window will open, find the item “Support” on the top of it, click on it.A window will open in which the “Details” item will appear, click on it. In the window that appears there will be information about the address of the DNS server.

Method three: through the provider

You need to go to the official website of your provider, find a section there where you can find out the DNS, this is the “Help Section”. On any site there is such information. You can also call the technical support service, find out the number in the booklet or in the contract. Ask your operator your DNS address. This will help to clarify the question of how to find the address of the DNS server.
