OpenDNS is perhaps a better option than Google DNS, but the principle is the same. The link below is very comprehensive.
If you can amend your own PC settings, just set the DNS server in PC network settings to use servers 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 for Google, or if, like me, you prefer OpenDNS, use 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. As a side benefit, OpenDNS offer a free home-only web filtering service.
If you don't mind amending your home broadband router config, the
settings can be made in there instead, which fixes things for all
users in your network. Have a look in the setupguide.
Just be aware that local name lookups might not work if you
change the settings on your PC, in particular your broadband
router/firewall/wireless box will not be accessible by name, only
by IP address . If you change the router DNS instead, everything
will still work as usual. Also watch out for DNS interception by
ISPs, that can result in them diverting your DNS so they can
insert adverts. Nasty. I use an Adblocker and No-script so I
miss out on a lot of the slow advert and tracker things.
