If you are planning to use Boxee Box we recommend you to configure your router. Please find router configuration details in our How to Setup page. With router setup all your devices in the network connected to your router gets access to Smart DNS Proxy.
If you don't have access to the router you are connected please find Smart DNS Proxy setup instructions for Boxee Box below:
1. Open Settings -> General -> Location. Uncheck "Hide feeds and applications that cannot be played in your location" (ignore this step if you don't have it)
2. Open Settings -> Network -> Network.
3. In the Configure menu select "Manually"
Change DNS server only to:
DNS Server : 188.8.131.52
You can also chose any of our DNS servers from the following list. We suggest you to use the closest DNS server to your physical location for faster dns query.
Make sure that "IP address", "Netmask" and "Default gateway" are exactly the same as with "Automatic" settings.
Make sure to RESTART your Boxee Box!
* Remember whenever your Boxee Box/Router IP changes, our service will stop working for you. You will need to LOG INTO Smart DNS Proxy and UPDATE your IP address so that our system could check your IP address and add your new IP to our database. Then you will be able to continue using our service. If this is the first time you set up, we also suggest you to log in with your PC to our site from the same Wired/Wireless network to show our system your IP address.
