How to configure custom DNS for only one Wifi network?

+1
−0

One of the Wifi networks I connect to has a DNS server on it, which is better than public ones. This DNS server is not available when connected to other networks.

When I'm on this network, I want my phone to use eg. 192.168.1.2 as the DNS. When on other networks, it should use the default automatic stuff (probably Google DNS or something).

On desktops, you can configure DNS per network. However, it looks like Android only has one global setting for custom DNS. I don't want to toggle DNS globally everytime I come in and leave the range of this one network.
