This tutorial will show you how to set up ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer on Google Wifi.
Before you proceed, please set up your Google Wifi.
MediaStreamer is a DNS service designed to improve your streaming experience. If your device does not natively support VPN, MediaStreamer is a great alternative for streaming.
1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website
Go to the ExpressVPN DNS settings page. If prompted, enter your ExpressVPN credentials and click Sign In.
Enter the verification code sent to your email.
Under IP address registration, click Register my IP address. If it already reads “registered” next to your IP address, there is no need to select this option again.
Toggle Automatically register my IP address on. This is recommended as it automatically tracks changes to your IP address.
Once you have enabled Automatically register my IP address, be sure to keep your registered IP address updated by periodically signing in to your account on the ExpressVPN website. Alternatively, you can use the ExpressVPN app (on any device) while connected to the same network as your Google Wifi. These actions grant the devices on your network continued access to MediaStreamer.
2. Get your MediaStreamer server IP addresses
Go to the ExpressVPN setup page. If prompted, enter your ExpressVPN credentials and click Sign In.
Enter the verification code that is sent to your email.
On the right, you will find the MediaStreamer DNS server IP addresses.
Keep this browser window open. You will need this information for the setup later.
3. Change your Google Wifi DNS settings
On your device, open the Google Wifi app.
Tap the Settings and actions tab.
Under Settings, tap Network & General.
Select Advanced networking.
Go to DNS > Customized. Enter the MediaStreamer DNS server IP addresses you found earlier.
You are now using ExpressVPN’s DNS settings on your Google Wifi for streaming.
Restore DNS settings
To restore your original DNS settings, go to the Google Wifi app. Tap the Settings and actions tab in the navigation bar.
Under Settings, tap Network & General > Advanced networking > DNS > Automatic.
