Though “Nintendo Switch” has got almost all the ingredients to offer exciting video gaming experience, NX still lacks a built-in web browser. As someone who likes to browse the web to keep track of the hottest video games that are making headlines, I think Nintendo should take this shortcoming very seriously. But that doesn’t mean you can’t circumvent the hurdle! It turns out; you can use a hidden web browser on your Nintendo Switch.
First things first, it’s not a perfect solution and requires some lengthy workaround. But if you badly want an option to browse the web on your video game console, this is the way to go!
How To Use The Hidden Web Browser On Nintendo Switch
Step #1. On the dashboard of your Nintendo Switch, scroll over to System Settings and choose Internet.
Step #2. Now, select Internet Settings and choose a Wi-Fi connection. Then, from the settings page for your network, choose Change Settings.
Step #3. Next, you need to scroll down and choose DNS Settings. Then, you have to change the DNS setting from Automatic to Manual.
Step #4. Next up, choose your Primary DNS and change it to 045.055.142.122. Make sure to save it. Now, the Switch will try to connect to the network.
Check out the prompt that says Registration is required to use this network.
Step #5. Choose Next. SwitchBru DNS page will appear on the screen.
Now, you need to wait for a few seconds to be redirected to Google.
Voila! Finally, the browser is on your Switch. Go ahead and make the most it.
After you have used the browser, you need to set your network DNS from Manual back to Automatic.
That’s pretty much it!
