How to set up Amazon Fire TV

Update: With the recent Amazon Fire TV OS update (to Version 5.0.5), Fire TV devices (boxes and sticks) will ignore IPv4 DNS settings in favor of IPv6 if available. Given that IPv6 beaks our service, if you see an IPv6 address for DNS in your device's network settings, then you'll need to disable IPv6 on your router in order to allow your Fire TV to use our DNS.

First you need to find the IP of your router. Please use the appropriate method below and note down the IP of your router.
