Select your Wifi network’s Settings.
Tap on Advanced.
For IP Settings, tap on DHCP and choose Static

Note: The DNS addresses shown in the images here are just examples.
Finally, tap Save to save the apply the changes.
Step 3: Activate Your IP address
Now that you’ve configured your device to use the Smart DNS, you will just need to activate your IP address. To do so, login into your Account and click on Activate next to IP activation.

Smart DNS Proxy Stopped Working?
Unfortunately, whenever your public IP address changes, you will need to activate/update your IP as per step #3 for the service to work again.
Just to let you know, your IP address could have changed due to;
- Your Internet connection got cut off momentarily.
- Internet router was rebooted.
- Your ISP made some changes or rebooted their system on their back end.
