What is the host name for 1.1.1.1?

Trying to configure my browser but it asks me for a dns host name. Can’t leave it blank. Tried to look it up everywhere including this forum… Imgur: The magic of the Internet

*said browser but meant to say router

Can you post a screenshot?

A router asking for a host name as a DNS resolver instead of an IP would be a very unusual thing.

Resolving a host name requires a resolver, so if in order to enable a resolver, you need a resolver, you’re stuck in a dead lock :slight_smile:

@jedisct1 I did post a screenshot in my original post, thanks for trying to assist

That looks like a local Hosts file where you can add local or any other hostnames and their IP address so you don’t have to do a lookup.

Page 175 in this manual explains this:
ftp://ftp2.zyxel.com/VMG8324-B10A/user_guide/VMG8324-B10A_V1.00.pdf

Pg. 110 shows you the screen where you enter the DNS servers, such as 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1

Ah that’s it, thanks for helping me out!

Probably should have checked the manual myself but there was a big button saying DNS in the main menu so I thought that had to be it. Turns out I had to look under the LAN button instead.
