When an SSID is configured in NAT mode, wireless clients will point to the MR access point (AP) as their DNS server. The AP then acts as a DNS proxy, and will forward clients' DNS queries to its configured DNS server. This article shows how to set custom DNS servers for a NAT SSID, instead of using the AP's DNS server. This is typically used to forward NAT SSID clients to a DNS server with custom content filtering.
Note: Wireless clients will still use the AP as their DNS server, this configuration customizes the destination server of the AP's DNS proxy.
- Navigate to Wireless > Configure > Access control in Dashboard
- Choose the SSID in NAT mode to customize the DNS settings
- Locate the Content filtering drop-down menu and choose Custom DNS
- Enter the preferred custom DNS IP addresses
- Click Save changes to apply the settings
Note: A maximum of 2 DNS servers can be specified and the AP will still proxy any queries to the custom DNS servers.
