Learn how to improve the speed of your internet connection for Xbox One on Xbox Live using CloudFlare's free DNS service.

Faster than anything else. 28% faster, in fact

If you don't already know about, you should! CloudFlare is the Internet’s fastest DNS directory. Since nearly everything you do on the Internet starts with a DNS request, choosing the fastest DNS directory across all your devices will accelerate almost everything you do online.

Cloudflare runs one of the world’s largest, fastest networks. APNIC is a non-profit organization managing IP address allocation for the Asia Pacific and Oceania regions.

The easiest way to setup CloudFlare DNS is to login to your router. If your router doesn't support custom DNS, you can still set each device manually, just follow the easy instructions below.

How To Setup CloudFlare DNS ( On Xbox One
1. Select Settings -> All settings.
2. Select Network -> Network Settings -> Advanced Settings
3. Select DNS Settings -> Manual
4. Enter "" for the PRIMARY DNS

- For IPv4: and
- For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111 and 2606:4700:4700::1001

That's it you're all done. Repeat these steps on all of your devices. Complete some tests, download some games, perform an update and reply below to let us know how it turned out.

IPv6 on Xbox One
Xbox One can connect to networks using two protocols that allow devices to transmit information: the traditional IPv4 communications protocol, and its newer version, IPv6. For Xbox One to connect to the Internet using IPv6, your home router needs to have IPv6 enabled, and your Internet service provider (ISP) must support IPv6.

What’s IPv6?
Internet Protocol version 6 is the most current network protocol, bringing several improvements over IPv4. Most important, IPv6 expands the number of possible IP addresses (the unique numbers that represent every device on the Internet). And—most useful for Xbox—the expansion removes the need for Network Address Translation (NAT), which can interfere with multiplayer gaming and chat over IPv4 networks.

What if my Xbox One isn’t connected using IPv6?
Your Xbox will work normally without IPv6 connectivity. However, for the best possible experience, we recommend enabling IPv6 on your network. Several Xbox One features already make use of IPv6, and we’re building more.

How can I tell if my Xbox is connected using IPv6?

Here’s how to check:

On your controller, Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
Select Settings > All settings.
Select Network > Network settings.
If your Xbox One has IPv6 connectivity, your Current Network Status will read IPv4 & IPv6. (To see your actual IP and gateway addresses, select Advanced settings.)

My Xbox is using only IPv4. What should I do to add IPv6?

Several home routers support IPv6 but disable it by default. Check the manual for your router, or visit our Networking Hardware Information support forum.

My router has IPv6 enabled, but my Xbox is connected on IPv4. What else can I do?

Try contacting your ISP to see if IPv6 is available in your area.
