If you're unable to set your DNS settings as described below, you might need to enable the "Experimental static IP configuration". To do so, navigate to chrome://flags in your omnibox.

After rebooting your device, you should be able to follow the steps below:
1) Open your browser and click on the sign in the top right corner of your screen.
2) Navigate to "Settings"
3) Under "Internet Connection", click on the name of your network
4) Then, under the "Network" tab choose "Custom name servers" and enter e.g.22.214.171.124 in one field and 126.96.36.199 in another. Click "Close" when you're done.
