This page will guide you through to set up our Smart DNS service, MyTelly on routers that are flashed with the Tomato (Shibby) firmware.
Note: While these instructions were written based on TomatoVPN (Shibby) version 1.28 (update 132), the principal should be the same for other versions of Tomato firmware.
Step 1: Getting Started
Login to our website, www.my-private-network.co.uk from your computer 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.
Step 2: MyTelly Configuration on router
Login to your Tomato router user interface and enter your router’s credentials.
In this example, our Tomato IP address is 192.168.1.1 but it might differ for yours.
If you are not sure, connect to the router’s network and check your network gateway address following the steps in this link below:
Once logged in, nagivate to Basic > Network found on the left hand menu.
Enter the DNS server addresses that appeared on your browser earlier into the Static DNS fields.
Note: There is 3 Static DNS fields and you’re required to enter the first two fields. The third field is optional and can be filled in with the second DNS address details.
Scroll down and click on Save to save the changes.
Click on Reboot to ensure the changes take effect on the network.
Step 3: MyTelly IP Registration on Network (Completion)
Head back to the MyTelly page, scroll down and click on Register This Address.
This will register your IP address and also test your DNS setup and indicate whether you have changed the DNS settings correctly.
You will get Your DNS is configured correctly! Enjoy! message on your screen if your DNS has been set successfully in our system.
Note: If you get Your DNS is not configured error message, please try again in a few minutes or reboot your router.
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 service since the DNS is already set on the router itself.
Now that you have setup and registered your system you can go ahead and access the TV sites that can be accessed with the service!
Unfortunately it doesn’t always go to plan!
