Amazon first released Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick in 2014, and since then, many new models of the device have been released.
In 2020, you can purchase a Firestick which comes Alexa enabled meaning that you can find out just about anything through the device, from the weather forecast to general queries.
Amazon’s Fire TV devices provide a whole lot of fun, but if you’re needing to know some more serious details about your Firestick, then you’re in the right place.
Whether you need to find out the device serial number after getting in contact with Amazon or you’re just curious to find out what model of Firestick you own, let’s see how to find the DSN on a Fire TV Stick.
How to find DSN on Fire TV Stick
If you’ve been asked to find your DSN or you simply wish to find it yourself, if you’re wondering: “Where do I find the serial number on my Firestick?”, it can be frustrating not knowing the answer.
However, this is a simple thing to find once you know how. To find the Device Serial Number of your device, please follow the steps below after logging into http://alexa.amazon.co.uk.
Settings > Devices > choose your device> About > Serial number (AKA DSN)
How to find the name of a Firestick
If you’re wondering which type of Firestick you have, you’ll need to head to the Amazon website.
From here, head to ‘Manage Your Content and Devices’ > Then select ‘Your Devices’ > Find your device and the exact model number can be found to the right of the screen.
There is so much to watch via the Amazon Firestick. And there’s nothing worse than missing out on your favourite shows due to dodgy Wi-Fi.

How to find DNS on Fire TV Stick
If you’re actually looking for something totally different – the DNS of your Fire TV Stick, then let’s take a look at how to do this, too.
The DNS, or Domain Name System, servers translate web addresses or domain names to their corresponding IP addresses (numerical form of the website).
Sometimes, changing the DNS settings on your Amazon Fire TV Stick can improve the connectivity and functionality of the device.
To find the DNS settings of your Firestick, please follow the steps below.
- Go to settings > My Fire TV > About > Network and make a note of the current settings.
- Now click the remote control button with three lines as its icon > Forget This Network.
- Click on your Wi-Fi network and enter your home Wi-Fi password. Then select ‘Advanced’.
- Using the notes taken in step 1, enter the IP address and Gateway of your network.
- Enter the number ’24’ for Network Prefix Length.
- Then enter DNS 1 and 2 as standard Google Public DNS settings such as ‘126.96.36.199’ and ‘188.8.131.52’.
