    Lightbulb BSNL DNS Servers Configuration

    Modem: ZTE ZXDSL 831II
    Plan: Home UL 900
    OS: Windows XP
    Location: Goa, India

    Currently I have changed the DNS as follows:
    Primary 218.248.240.208 (ns3.bsnl.in)
    Secondary 218.248.240.24 (ns5.bsnl.in)

    Appreciate suggestions to improve Internet Access.

    I still have problems accessing my gmail, majorgeeks, etc.

    Thanks.

    instead of using the bsnl dns server try using these open dns server. these are considered to be the best dns servers in this world.

    Primary DNS :-218.67.222.222
    Secondary DNS:-218.67.220.220

    Dear fernacOa,
    I saw your post regarding DNS servers. I have the same ZTE ZXDSL 831AII model of DSL modem supllied by BSNL.
    AS my modem is configured for auto-assigning IP address and auto-DNS ,I was unable to use openDNS servers which offer much better performance.
    In addition to BSNL, I have also have a internet connection through local
    cable operator. In this connection I have set openDNS servers as primary/secondary DNS servers. Here static IP is provided and believe me pages open much faster than BSNL.
    How did you change primary/secondary DNS servers in ZXDSL modem ?
    I am unable to locate the menu/page . You step-by-step
    guide would be much useful .

    Member niraj8241 is correct in advising you to change to openDNS servers .IT is my experience and of my other members that openDNS servers offer much better performance vis-a -vis BSNL 's own DNS servers.

    please try them and advise your experience.

    DEAR rahulyo,

    openDNS servers serve a worldwide community of users.,while BSNL servers serve only its own captive Internet users. openDNS servers dynamically distribute load among various physical servers and are able to offer much better performance.BSNL does not seem to bother much about its performance and customer satisfaction .

    Why don't you try them for a few days and compare them with your own experience with BSNL DNS servers ?

    When pinging the OpenDNS Servers as opposed to nsx.bsnl.in (where x = 1 to 6) I find that the OpenDNS Servers are much slower. So much for speed. But they may be useful where acess to websites are concerned.

    For example, I have difficulties accessing websites like:
    mail.google.com
    majorgeeks.com
    softpedia.com

    I resolved the problem of opeining my gmail using gmail notifier.

    Any suggestions on the other two?

    u can do this very well in while using utorrent. go to preference->advanced->search for a option called net_max_half_open(set this value to 80) (default=8). then see the speed .

    I am not sure that this will do the trick. uTorrent may try to have many half open connections but Windows will not allow more than 10. Are you sure that this is working for you?

    about Half-open_limit.
    I have a file...with which you can configure your tcpip.sys to change half-open limit.
    if you just change it in the utorrent preference it will make no difference in speed.

    unfortunately, I cannot post outside urls
    file's name is "Half-open_limit_fix_3.8.exe"
    google it.

    if u really want it...pm me, i'll pm u the rapidsharelink :rockon:

    http : //theos.in/windows-xp/free-fast-public-dns-server-list/

    Primary DNS :-218.67.222.222
    Secondary DNS:-218.67.220.220
    They are universal dns >>> 208.67...... usually slow

    you should try
    Preferred : 218.248.255.193
    Secondary : 218.248.255.161

    Here are the testimonials of mine

    First I set open DNS IP
    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

    then my problem solved of BSNL (like many websites were not opening or opening after many refreshes)

    upload speed was fine but download gone very down.

    Then after I set Google Public DNS IP addresses

    8.8.8.8

    8.8.4.4

    Then my download speed was great but upload speed gone low

    now anybody can tell which DNS will be best for UL+750 users ?

    but one thing is that by using mentioned IPs my problem was solved but speed balance is a matter now.

    Edit:
    can I use double DNS one is on router and one is one pc or other equipments ?

    My problem is sort out now

    I wanted upload speed for a Ethernet box I given open DNS to that and its working fine and I given Google DNS to my PC and its working fine with downloading. I am getting double speed 512 Kbps.

    But I loose speed of 2.94 mbps which I was getting from last 7 days.

    Its ok, I wanted a stable connection more than high speed.

    If anybody wanna see what I did exactly, mail me and PM me. I will show on teamviewer

    Thanks

    Just put it in the TCP/IP properties of your connection. It will work.

    That is in the system, I am asking about how to put it in the router itself just like we do in ut300r2u by just unchecking the tick box and entering manually in the host columns. So that we need enter it in the every system we use.

    Talking Using Google DNS is better than OpenDNS

    To make changes in the router you should.
    -> Login into the router.
    -> Make changes to the Static DNS settings.

    One thing to remember is that the PC will not automatically get the new DNS server if you are running DHCP. In which case go to the command prompt (In admin mode if u are in Vista or Windows 7) and do a ipconfig /release followed by ipconfig /renew
