To manually configure your router with ExpressVPN’s DNS servers’ addresses, in DD-WRT:

  1. On the Setup tab under Network Address Server Settings (DHCP), look for Static DNS 1 and Static DNS 2.
  2. Set Static DNS 1 to 8.8.8.8and set Static DNS 2 to 8.8.4.4If Google DNS is blocked for you, please try:
      • Neustar DNS Advantage (156.154.70.1 and 156.154.71.1),
      • Level3 DNS (4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2)
  3. Click Apply Settings.
