    Default Cant access few sites on Bsnl Broadband

    Hi, Ive just switched from my tata docomo 3G dongle connection to Bsnl Broadband connection and i cant seem to access few file sharing sites.

    Ive changed my DNS setting to Google's free DnS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) but its still not working for me.

    Plz help

    Try a different browser and see if the problem goes away so we have something to work on.

    I just tried the links you had problems with. Same error. Added https and an exception to my mozilla by clicking I understand the risks.
    It'll redirect you to another page. Add https again.. Voila.

    Whenever any new bollywood movie is on the verge of release, the ISPs in India do this especially the torrent sites.

    Sites blocked by an ISP wont work no matter what DNS you use. You would need to use a proxy to be able to by pass the blocking of site's IP address.

    Not only BSNL every ISP does it at some point as per the orders of the court. The prime targets are torrent sites and URL shorten-er websites.

    Proxy works, But browsing speed is greatly reduced.
