I tried to change my DNS to the google servers:

8.8.8.8

8.8.4.4

 

But I could not connect to the internet at all.  I had to go back in to IPv4 properties and change to "connect automatically."

 

I was able to change my DNS before. But something is different. I was using Win 7 pro 64 bit my OEM copy, but my HDD died and had to replace. I have to use Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit for the time being. 

 

I am playing with DNS because I am getting 504 Gateway Timeout Errors and because alternative DNS servers are said to be potentially less censored. 

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

I  have to eat crow here.  I made a mistake in inputting the DNS numbers. I put one DNS number in the IP address field in the top have of IPv4 properties, 

 

I should have put in both DNS numbers in the 2 fields in the bottom half of the dialog box. 

 

Thread RESOLVED.
