OpenDNS And Google Public DNS

OpenDNS and Google Public DNS are free, global Domain Name System (DNS) resolution services, that you can use as an alternative to your current DNS provider.

Edit Connections....

In my case : Wired > Edit > IP4 Settings

At Method open the dropdown menu and select Automatic (DHCP) addresses only.

In the DNS servers field, enter the following IP addresses, separated by a comma.

For OpenDNS :,

For Google Public DNS :,

Restart Networkmanager ( might not be needed ) :

sudo service network-manager restart

Restart your browser...

To check run the next command in a Terminal :

nm-tool | tail -n 8
