Static DNS for WiFi

Static DNS for WiFi


This app automatically configures Android device to use your preferred DNS servers on every wireless lan access-points (Wi-Fi AP, hotspot).
You can choice faster and secure DNS servers s.t. Google Public DNS, Comodo secure DNS, etc.

When Android device creates WiFi connection to an access-point, the AP assigns an IP address for the device and also (sometimes slow) DNS servers via DHCP, an automation protocol for network configuration. If you want to use faster DNS servers on all APs but do not want to configure static IP address manually on each AP, this app will help.

This app requests IP address assignment as usual devices, then generates static IP configuration with your preferred DNS servers with assigned IP address..
To prevent collision of IP addresses, the generated configuration will be removed after disconnect from the AP or on the lease expiration of assigned address.


== NOTICE ==
This app is provided AS IS, WITHOUT WARRANTY. Please use this app AT YOUR OWN RISK.

To clear generated configurations, please make sure "auto static DNS" function is disabled BEFORE uninstall this app.
If you had uninstalled this app before disable its function, please remove static IP address settings from all access-points manually, or reinstall this app.

This app deeply relies on undocumented Android OS behaviors and implements.
Unfortunately, some devices cannot work with this app due to luck of programmable interface to control DNS settings.
Other WiFi management apps, which also try to configure WiFi settings or reconnect to another access-points, may conflict with this app. Please send us feedback if you found such conflicts.


== Privacy Policy (in brief) ==
This app logs WiFi configurations for debugging. You can explicitly send the log from Menu -> Report Problem.
Collected information from the reports may be used for improving this app. Any personal identifiable information will not be transferred to third party.

Works perfectly, one wish Works brilliantly. My wish: I'd like the option of a whitelist instead of a blacklist (my main use is to override the settings of one dodgy AP).
