    heres my problem: safari cant find the page even though im connected to my school network. when i type in the IP in the address bar, it works. obviously its a DNS problem. so i copied the router IP to my DNS, like this:

    ip address: 10.4.1.21
    subnet mask: 255.255.0.0
    router: 10.4.0.1
    DNS: 10.4.0.1

    when i go back to safari, it still cant open the page unless i put in the IP. what could be the problem? no one else seems to have this problem...ive searched the forums several times. please help =[

    Go to settings with WiFi set to On...Select your WiFI and tap on the Blue Arrow.

    Under 'DHCP" you can change the DNS Servers.
    Under "Static" you can edit all the information manually.

    Option 1

    Try OpenDNS

    Set your DNS to: 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

    Option 2

    Under Static Tab:

    IP Address: 192.168.1.150
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Router: 192.168.1.1
    DNS: 192.168.1.1

    So try this. It might be good to go to settings/General/Reset/Resetnetworksetting and do the reset.
