Hmm... I Hate Changin DNS Servers...

Why Don't U PPL Use TreeWalk Instead...?
TreeWalk DNS is a Domain Name Server program which fetches and converts Web Site human-readable names into the numbered addresses your computer needs so that your browser, email, instant messenger, and FTP programs can surf the Web.
TreeWalk DNS requires virtually no support as it is generally an \"install it and forget it\" application. It really is that easy! However, we recognize that occasional configuration problems do occur so if you need help, please review our FAQ page to see if your problem is listed there. If that doesn't provide an answer for you, use the Forums page for information about our Forums and Newsgroups to look for the solution to your problem. Due to the simplicity of installing and running TreeWalk DNS, your query has probably been \"asked and answered\" already but feel free to join in anyway!

Source N Download: http://treewalkdns.com/ OR http://ntcanuck.com/downloads.htm

Its' A FreeWare... NO ADWARE - NO SPYWARE...

If You Think This Won't Make A Difference... Don't Download It Right Away...

First Download This http://grc.com/miscfiles/dnsru.exe
Thats' DNS RU Or DNS Research Utility
DNSRU (Domain Name System Research Utility) is freely distributed by Steve Gibson, and can be used to test your provider's DNS servers' speeds for comparison to localhost. Be sure to read the info within and visit the links to his site for more on DNSRU. Awesome! However, you'll need to select the program icon then press and hold the \"Shift\" key before double-clicking every time you want to run it, to by-pass the pre-configured expiration. Initially, you may need to double-click the selected icon a second time while depressing the Shift key if you do it this way. Another method is to hold down the Shift key, right-click the icon and select \"Open\". You'll be most interested in the Benchmark tab, and the Server selection capability which is available through clicking the DNSRU icon at the top left of the opened program. Remember, this is still an unfinished Research and Development tool, so some functions are not enabled.[/b]

Internally, all timing measurements are taken with sub-microsecond (839 nanosecond) resolution and maintained to six significant decimal places. They are rounded to three decimal places for presentation.

take those reliance servers out of the list coz they wont resolve the names unless u are on reliance networkAnd BSNL and VSNL are as good as MTNL no point in keeping htem as alternates..THis treewalk local dns server would speed up things for cached IP address's but wat abt those that are fresh and not cached...it would still have to lookup some DNS server on the web..so essentially if u browse a lot of new sites everyday its not goin to offer a lot of improvement though it may still be more reliable than MTNL dns

Techno,I have installed the said software and the settings are the one you suggested.Its working fine but sometimes there are problem like router shows the status up, it also shows the IP ,59 something something but unable to surf the net.Right now whenever this problem occur I reconfigure the modem though the settings are correct.I do this coz i dont know what else to do when this problm occurs.pls suggest anything from your side that I should do when this problem occurs.Also anything by which this problem can be solved permanently so that it wont occur any more.Btw, when this problem occurs the diagnostic says Fail to ping defalut gateway and dns.Yours suggestions are appreciated techno.note: Can u tell me wht this problem occurs?

Techno after intsalling the treewalk from the link you gave things have improved a lot.I cant even believ that my same internet connection is running such nicely.

I dont have any firewall in my PC.Treewalk control panel says that service is running.I checked this while my net was ON.

I am having single pc and the connection is used by single pc.The router is configured on pppoe.When I installed the treewalk and rebooted my pc the DNS was 127.0.0.1 and the alternate dns was 192.168.1.1

But now the DNS is 127.0.0.1 but the alternate dns has automtacially changed to 4.2.2.1

i did not changed it,automatically happened.

Can i now rechange the alternate dns to 192.168.1.1
