This page will guide you through to set up our Smart DNS service, MyTelly on an Amazon Kindle Fire.
Login to our website, www.my-private-network.co.uk using your Kindle Fire web browser and you should be redirected to the My Subscription page.
Select the MyTelly tab on the left hand corner of the screen and click on Setup.
Take note of the fastest DNS servers address that appears on screen.
Now, swipe down the notification bar to access the Quick Settings page and then tap on Wireless & VPN ( or go into Settings and then tap on Wireless & VPN settings ).
In the Wireless settings menu, tap on Wi-Fi.
Tap and hold on your current connected Wi-Fi connection until a pop-up window appears and choose Modify Network.
Next, tap on Show Advanced Options, scroll down below and change the IP settings to Static.
The device network details that we need are the IP Address and Gateway. If you are not sure where to find these, please follow the instructions from the links below:
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, Kindle’s Fire OS populates these fields automatically so you can just proceed to enter the DNS 1 and DNS 2 fields.
Scroll down until you see the DNS settings and enter the addresses that appeared on your browser earlier into the DNS 1 and DNS 2 entries.
Note: Just to reiterate, the details above are just an example on our device, this will be different for your devices, please take a note of them first before editing.
This will register your IP address and also test your DNS setup and indicate whether you have changed the DNS settings correctly.
Now that you have set up your Kindle tablet and registered your network connection, you can go ahead and access the supported TV sites with the service!
Unfortunately it doesn’t always go to plan!
