  4. Enter that code to access DNS settings.

  7. Go to www.expressvpn.com/setup#playstation
  8. When the page opens, you will see the DNS server IP address, copy that address. 
  9. Now open your PS4 and PS5, Settings → Network → Settings → Set Up Internet Connection. 
  10. Go to the Advanced Settings of the Internet connection that your PS4 and PS5 is using. 
  11. In Advance Settings, do the following:
  • IP Address Settings: Automatic
