Welcome back, gamers, to another brand new article at DigiStatement.Hope all of you are having a great day. Today we will be discussing a very important topic, mainly for PS5 users. The PS5, as we all know is a powerhouse among gaming consoles, and provides specifications like no other. The PlayStation 5 is a bit costly and also hard to get due to the sheer demand it has in the market. So, if you have one, you are one lucky guy!
The PS5 is a console that supports all sorts of games to meet every gamer’s taste and that too with impressive graphical power. But if you play multiplayer games, you will know that the speed of your internet is necessary for getting a decent ping. Sometimes you might face ping issues even if you have a decent internet connection. This is due to your DNS server. So stay with us, and we will provide a solution for you.
What is DNS Server and why do you need to change it?
A DNS or a Domain Name System is a system-based algorithm that helps in translating domain names into specific IP Addresses. The Internet Service Provider or ISP that you are using, provides a default DNS setting to set up your connection. But the DNS servers that your ISPs provide are far from being good, and it might be the reason for your high ping. In this case, you need fast DNS servers and for that, you have to change your DNS settings on your PS5 manually.
How to change DNS Server on PS5 & Speed up download speed
Don’t worry, we have got your back, follow these steps below, and you can easily change your DNS servers and speed up your internet speed on your PS5.
