You must go to the Settings section, tap on the Wi-Fi option and select your network, which must be checked with a blue checkmark.

Changing the DNS address

Then select the DNS section and change the existing default numbers to other faster addresses, such as:



  • Google: 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4.
  • OpenDNS: 208.67.222.222 or 208.67.220.220.
  • OpenDNS Home: 208.67.222.222 or 208.67.220.220.
  • IPv6 addresses: 2620: 119: 35 :: 35 or 2620: 119: 53 :: 53.

After you have replaced your DNS, go back to the screen to save the settings and then just turn your iPhone's WiFi off and on to start using the internet.
