    Default Starhub DNS server down???

    Hi all,

    I experienced once yesterday and just 20 mins ago the DNS server was down again.. Cannot ping. Called up my brother, he also experienced the same thing, so we used Singnet DNS server. 165.21.83.88...

    Ho hum... I wonder if Starhub patched their nameservers against the recently publicized weakness of DNS. In the US, AT&T apparently got already badly hit by attacks.

    OK for those asked abt how to change the DNS server. Here are the steps in Windows XP. (It should be roughly the same for other Microsoft OS).

    Go to your network setting in Control Panel,
    1) Select your network
    2) Goto Properties
    3) Check IP/TCP
    4) Click on "Use the following DNS server addresses
    5) Type 165.21.83.88 for first one and 165.21.100.88 for second one..

    Bingo, there you go..

    For some reasons, I dunno why my youtube can stream very fast.. usually this time is very laggy. Maybe because most of the SH users cannot access that's why I got all the bandwidth?

    Same here but on Singtel ADSL. Intermittent DNS lookup errors.

    Router hanging pretty rare. A quick ping does the check instead of doing reboots after reboots.
