Tuesday Tech Tip: Using Google DNS on a Chromebook

I’ve got a Chromebook on the way so I thought I’d start digging for some tips. Here’s an interesting one that I’m somewhat surprised isn’t set by default. If you’d rather use Google’s DNS instead of whatever the connected ISP uses you can change the setting in the experimental area:

  1. Open chrome://flags on your Chromebook
  2. Look for Experimental static ip configuration and enable it
  3. Restart your Chromebook
  4. Open chrome://net-internals/#dns
  5. Under nameservers, select Google name servers
