How to setup Static Routes on Belkin Router

Last Updated: Nov 04, 2015 01:21PM EST

Introduction

Some devices (such as Roku and Chromecast) are setup by default to use Google’s DNS. Setting up static routes will block Google’s DNS from being used on your device and enable it to use Blockless.
 

This article will explain how to setup Static Routes on your Belkin Router.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Open up your web browser and type in 192.168.2.1 OR 192.168.0.1 OR 192.168.1.1 
  2. Enter your log in information. The default login and password are:
    username: (leave blank) or admin
    password: (leave blank) or admin
  3. On the left hand side of the page, click the link labeled Static Routing which is under LAN Setup
  4. Input the following values to your new route:

    Network Address: 8.8.8.8
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255 (if this does not work use 255.255.255.0)
    Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (or you may try 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.2.254) 
  5. Once done with the changes hit Apply
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 for the other Google DNS server. Input the following values to this new static route: Network Address: 8.8.4.4
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255 (if this does not work use 255.255.255.0)
    Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (or you may try 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.2.254)
  7. Once done with the change click Apply Changes then restart your device. The device should now be blocked from using Google’s DNS and will be able to use Blockless!
