How Do I Find My DNS Server on My Samsung Smart TV?


Larry Thompson

If you are facing issues with your Samsung Smart TV’s internet connection, one of the troubleshooting steps you might need to perform is to find your DNS server. The DNS (Domain Name System) server is responsible for translating domain names into IP addresses, allowing your Smart TV to connect to websites and online services. By knowing your DNS server, you can check its settings or switch to a different one if needed.

Method 1: Using the Network Status Menu

To find your DNS server using the Network Status menu on your Samsung Smart TV, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Menu button on your remote control. This will open the main menu.
  2. Navigate to Network and press Enter.
  3. Select Network Status.
  4. Your current network connection information will be displayed on the screen. Look for the DNS Server field to find your DNS server address.

If you want to change your DNS server, proceed to Method 2 below.

Method 2: Changing DNS Settings

If you wish to change your DNS server settings, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Menu button on your remote control and go to Settings.
  2. Select Network.
  3. Navigate to Network Settings, then choose either Wireless or Wired, depending on how your Smart TV is connected.
  4. Select your network connection from the list of available networks.
  5. Choose IP Settings.
  6. Select DNS Settings.
  7. If you have an automatic DNS setting enabled, switch it to Manual. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.
  8. Enter the desired DNS server addresses. You can use public DNS servers like Google’s (8.8.8, 8.4.4) or Cloudflare’s (1.1.1, 1.0.1), or contact your internet service provider for their recommended DNS server.
  9. Save your settings and exit the menu.

Your Samsung Smart TV will now use the new DNS server you have specified.
