This has to be done only once.

Go to “View network status and tasks” (4).
Click on “Change adapter settings” link (5) from the left bar.
Right click on “Wireless Network Connection” (6) if you are on Wi-Fi or right click on “ Local Area Connection” (7) in the case you use cable connection, then go to “Properties”.
Select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” (9) then click “Properties” (10).
Select the “Use the following DNS server addresses” option (11) and enter DNS Server addresses (12). You can find them in Settings -> DNS Servers in Your Account on our website.
