Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to find your DNS server address on Windows 7? Well, look no further!
In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to help you locate your DNS server address. So, let’s get started!
Step 1: Open Network and Sharing Center
To begin, first open the “Network and Sharing Center” on your Windows 7 computer. You can access this by clicking on the network icon in the system tray, typically located in the bottom-right corner of your screen. Once clicked, a menu will pop up displaying various options – select “Open Network and Sharing Center” from this menu.
Step 2: View Status of Your Network Connection
In the Network and Sharing Center window, you will see an overview of your network connections. Find the connection for which you want to find the DNS server address and click on it. This will open a new window displaying information about that specific network connection.
Step 3: Open Properties for Your Network Connection
In this new window, click on the “Properties” button. This will open another window with a list of all the properties related to your selected network connection.
Step 4: Locate Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
In the properties window, scroll down until you find “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” in the list. Select it by clicking on it once to highlight it.
Step 5: View DNS Server Address
After selecting “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)”, click on the “Properties” button below it. A new window titled “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties” will appear. In this window, you will find the DNS server address under the “DNS server addresses” section.
If your network connection is set to obtain DNS server addresses automatically, you will see the option “Obtain DNS server address automatically” selected. However, if you have manually configured your DNS server address, you will find the specific addresses listed in the text boxes below.
Step 6: Save or Note Down the DNS Server Address
If you need to use this DNS server address for any reason, make sure to save or note it down before closing any of the windows. It’s always a good idea to keep a record of your network settings for future reference.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully found your DNS server address on Windows 7.
We hope this tutorial was helpful and easy to follow. Remember, knowing your DNS server address can be beneficial when troubleshooting network issues or configuring specific applications.
