Important: On stock Android firmwares, the greyed out details are only an example. You will need to key in the details manually based on the network you are connected on.
The device network details that we need are the IP Address and Gateway address. If you are not sure where to find these, please follow the instructions from the links below:
How to find your Android device IP address
How to find your Default Network Gateway
Note: Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any way to check the Default Gateway address directly from the device unless by downloading a 3rd party app. However, some versions of Android firmware populates these fields automatically so you can just proceed to enter the DNS 1 and DNS 2 fields.
Once you’ve confirmed the details above, enter them into the appropriate fields as such:
IP Address: Your device IP address
Gateway: Your network’s default gateway address ( router IP address )
Network Prefix Length: 24
DNS 1 and DNS 2: The DNS server addresses that appeared in Step 1
Note: Just to clarify, the details above are just an example on our device. This will be different for your device, so please take a note of them first before editing.
Tap Save to save the apply the changes.
Now, head back to the MyTelly Settings page on our website again.
Register IP Address for MyTelly
Scroll down and click on Register This Address. This will register your IP address and also test your DNS setup to indicate whether you have configured the DNS settings correctly.
You will get a Your DNS is configured correctly! Enjoy! message on your screen if your DNS has been set successfully on your system.
Note: You will not have to do it again unless your IP address changes. Also, any device on the same network will be able to use the MyTelly service as long as you’ve set our DNS on their device’s settings.
Now that you have setup and registered your system, you can go ahead and access any TV content providers that we support!
Unfortunately it doesn’t always go to plan!
