Introduction

This article explains how to setup Static Routes on your D-Link Router.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Log in to your router's DNS settings page.
  2. Click on the Advanced tab, then select Routing from the left side menu.
  3. Place a check mark on the first static routing entry field then input the following:

    Name: GoogleDNS1
    Destination IP: 8.8.8.8
    Metric: 2
    Netmask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 127.0.0.1
    Interface: LAN
  4. Next enter the following:

    Name: GoogleDNS2
    Destination IP: 8.8.4.4
    Metric: 2
    Netmask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 127.0.0.1
    Interface: LAN
  5. Once the static routes have been added click Save Settings.
  6. To test if the static routes are working you will need to perform a ping test. If you are using a Windows computer do the following: (if you are on a Mac skip to the next step.
    On your keyboard press the Windows Button and press R at the same time. In the Run box that appears type cmd and press enter.Once in the command prompt type the following:

    ping 8.8.8.8 (press enter)

    If you get a "Ping Request Timed out" that means your route has been correctly configured. You may repeat the same command for the other route by typing "ping 8.8.4.4".
  7. If you are on a Macbook open your Terminal by searching "Terminal" using the search function on the top right of your screen. Once open type the following command:

    ping 8.8.8.8 (press enter)

    If you get a "Ping Request Timed out" this means your static route has been correctly configured. You may repeat the ping test for the other route by typing "ping 8.8.4.4"
  8. Once the static routes are confirmed working, restart all devices you are using with Blockless.
