I posted this earlier in the networking forum, but I think it is also relevant here. Let me know if anyone has any ideas:
Need some help on a DNS issue - stop me if you've heard this one before...
I recently resolved a longstanding DNS issue on my PC; I was getting "unable to resolve the servers DNS" messages, etc. While I _somehow_ managed to fix the issue on the PC, my son just got a Samsung Galaxy Tab4 which seems to be having the same issue. Actually, now that I check, the iPhones cannot connect but my iPad can connect. Not so much worried about the phones, but if I don't get his tablet online, and quick, I'm not sure what he's capable of...
I tried to change the DNS settings in the "Modify Network Config" fields of the Tab4:
I read that in order to change the DNS settings on the Tab4, you had to change from DHCP to static, so I did that. When I tried to change to the recommended DNS settings, the "Save" field at the bottom greyed out and wouldn't let me save the changes.
The settings are as follows:
Static IP - 192.168.1.111
DNS 1 - 192.168.1.254
DNS 2 - 126.96.36.199 - (this field is greyed out from the outset)
Anyway, any help on the matter is appreciated.
