How to Fix Reliance JioFi DNS Issues?

Reliance Jio 4G is one of the leading Mobile Internet Providers in India. Reliance WiFi hotspot called JioFi can share 4G data connection among up to 32 devices. However, just like every Internet Service Providers, Reliance Jio 4G is too not free from default DNS server issues.

A faulty JioFi DNS server can make your Internet connection slower or even block many websites. By solving JioFi hotspot DNS issues, we can have a hassle-free browsing experience. This article teaches you how to fix JioFi DNS issues.

How to Check If JioFi DNS Server is Fine?

Let me explain how to find out whether the JioFi DNS server is down or not. If your device having a JioFi connection cannot access a website by typing the URL but can connect with the website IP address, is due to faulty Jio DNS Server.

A simple example can explain this concept clearly. Consider a situation where you are browsing on a PC connected to the Internet with JioFi Hotspot WiFi.

Consider you have trouble accessing this blog by typing on the address bar of your browser. But by typing the IP address of on your chrome browser, you can view this blog.

This situation is due to the inability of JioFi default DNS Server to convert the domain name to the respective IP address.

By changing the Reliance Jio DNS server with another efficient Domain Name Server, you can fix this issue forever.

How to Change Default Reliance JioFi Hotspot DNS Server

Are you trying to find out how to change the Reliance Domain Name System details by login to the Graphical User Interface (GUI) with Google or Open DNS? Jio WiFi Router GUI does not provide a straight method to change the DNS information.
