I have problem with network connection. Internet don't work but when I type ping in terminal it works.

So I called ISP and operator tell me that to change DNS but I don't know where it is.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.


The easiest way to set a custom DNS on Ubuntu 14.04 (and other) is by editing the base file of the resolv.conf.d folder:

sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base

Add your DNS to the file :


Update resolv configuration :

sudo resolvconf -u

  • thanks but can you tell why this happened? I didn't change anything but this morning all phones and computers wouldn't connect to computer. – Vesal75 Aug 18 '15 at 10:26
  • Sorry I am not sure to understand. You connect all your computers and phones to another computer ? I think it is a different problem. You should create a new question for that. – hg8 Aug 18 '15 at 10:33
