Configure DNS host mapping on your modem

DNS host mapping creates a static hostname for the specified IP address in the DSL router. Both WAN and LAN IP addresses are supported.
NOTE:  This article applies to newer CenturyLink modems. Depending on your particular model, you may see slight differences in the features or layout of your modem's user interface.
Modem Advanced Step 1-4

1.  Connect a device, such as a computer or tablet, to the internet through WiFi or using an Ethernet cable connected to your modem.

2.  Open a web browser and type into the web address field.

3.  Log in to the modem's online user interface (Modem GUI) using your Administrator Username and Administrator Password. Unless you have changed the default settings, you can find this information on the modem's sticker. Note that these are different from your wireless SSID and security key.

4.  Select "Advanced Setup."

5.  Select "DNS Host Mapping" in the left sidebar. This menu option may appear in the LAN Settings section or in the IP Addressing section, depending on your model.

6.  Follow the steps to edit the settings:

  • Step 1:  Enter the desired DNS host name.
  • Step 2:  Enter the IP address. You can also click to remove items from the DNS Host Mapping List at the bottom.
  • Step 3:  When you're finished adding or removing items, click "Apply" to save your changes.
