    Hi guys,

    Can anybody check the SDK emulator and tell me whether we are able to change the DNS Servers in Wifi Settings? This is a feature I have been waiting for a long time. IOS and Android, both have it..Not sure why MS hasnt added this small feature

    Same here. Under Wifi settings I only have:

    Find Nearby Wi-fi
    Wi-fi Sense
    Manage

    Advanced is gone now too which used to be there.

    You guys have got to tap and hold your preferred Wifi connection, then select 'Edit'. Then you will get that feature/setting :)

    I dunno how you updated your phone to WP8.1. But I did a full phone reset right after the update finished just to clear out any possible kinks in the process. Perhaps that did the trick for me...

    Updated from dev preview. When I edit my network IP settings all grayed out and not editible like it was in wp8. I MAY try a full reset if/when i feel like reinstalling all my stuff again. Really shouldn't have to do that though. Just doesn't make sense.

    From what I gather, a full reset fixes a lot of issues - although not all

    If you're using your phone as your 'daily driver' I would suggest to hold on for a few more hours before you do a full reset. The Windows Phone store is currently not working and you may not be able to pull/update your apps.

    I'll test this on my 920 before I do it to this phone. I'll let you know how it goes

    Yes :-(
    Looks like if DNS setting were in WP8.1 , they are gone now :-(.

    And VPN is another problem - only 1 protocol to choose from and not very popular :-( So... in reality VPN is still unusable :-(

    BUT if you notice there is a link to download SSL VPN apps from the store. So I'm hoping that means cisco can now develop an app for it
    I really want to set custom DNS for my phone though,:( I wanna use my unblock us so I can use Netflix!

    I have just spoke to VPN provider I use to access Netflu, Hulu and others. For now that do not plan to add IKEv2 support to their range of VPN protocols - PPTP, L2TP, SSTP and OpenVPN is enough. Problem is, that Ms decided to swap SSTP for IKEv2 (I hope they will add different protocols in future :-( ). But with no DNS change support I can not use even SmartDNS they are offering.

    Sometimes I really wish I had iOS or Android device :-(

    Is this feature coming in windows phone 8.1 or this is just a rumour. Microsoft seems to be against providing static ip to users (to avoid IP clashes, i think so....) Kindly post more details about this feature.

    That's because it doesn't exist.

    Some ROMs have Static IP. Most of them don't.

    Hi,
    Sorry for reopening this old thread. I just checked my 1520 wifi settings and I too don't see the suggested advanced options with the possibility to edit wifi details (especially dns). So do I understand it right that this option was there but now it's removed? Or was it just temporarily available in dev. preview version? Is there any way to ask MS to return this option back?

    I can't help in case of your phone but if you want to change dns I can teach you how to change it from your PC

    Thanks for the reply and offer! You mean how to change the DNS on router? I know how to do this. The problem is, that it can be done only with routers I can access (typically home wifi). And honestly, it's much easier/faster to change the DNS in phone settings (if possible) than to edit the router settings. It's really pity there is no such option in WP yet. Honestly, this bothers me much more than the lack of some apps I'm used to from iOS (from where I just migrated) ;)

    mmmm...annoying

    I can connect to my work Wi-Fi and use a VPN, but they also use OpenDNS to block several sites (nothing dodgy, just stuff like youtube, 4sq etc). It seems strange it was it a previous version?

    I'm on the DP so hopefully they will include it in the next release.
