Re: Swisscon DNS problem

I find that Swisscom often has DNS problems. For me the solution was to switch to Google's DNS servers.

Re: Swisscon DNS problem

Or if you don't trust Google have a look at OpenDNS.

Re: Swisscon DNS problem

Try OpenDNS 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220 or chose the fastest resolvers relative to your public IP here.

Re: Swisscon DNS problem

Re: Swisscon DNS problem

If you're a Windows or Mac user, you can try this software : http://code.google.com/p/namebench/; it tests several DNS providers and give you the fastest.

I used it and found one which is 500x faster than my "normal" DNS provider.

I really see the difference.....
