BSNL DNS Problems and how to solve it | November 22,

2006

If you are a BSNL dataone user, chances are that you are facing DNS issues for the last few weeks or so. Their DNS servers are just unresponsive. The lookup takes a long duration and many times just time out. The solution? Use third party DNS servers or run your own one like djbdns.

The easiest options is to use OpenDNS. Just reconfigure your network to use the following DNS servers:

208.67.222.222

208.67.220.220

Detailed instructions specific to your router are available in the OpenDNS website itself. After I reconfigured my Linksys router to use the above 2 IP addresses, my DNS problems just vanished! Other ‘freebies’ that come with OpenDNS are phishing filters and automatic URL correction. Even if your service provider’s DNS servers are working fine, you can still use OpenDNS just for these two special features.

7. Has anybody tried pinging these DNS servers? I use a totally different set of DNS servers for DataOne that return 30ms and are way faster then these ones.

38. Throughout the awesome scheme of things you’ll receive a B- for hard work. Where exactly you actually lost everybody ended up being on the facts. As people say, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be more accurate right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did deliver the results. The text can be rather convincing which is possibly why I am taking an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not sure of how you appear to unite your points which in turn make the final result. For now I will yield to your position however hope in the future you actually link the facts much be er.
