Alternately, for Globelines (Philippines) DNS Servers, you can try:

Depending on the time of the day, below DNS varies in performance/speed:

    Why does the facebook could not be open?


    This problem can occur if there is a mismatch between the configured IP addresses in the Advanced IP Addressing dialog box and those listed in the Server Properties dialog box for the DNS server. This problem can also occur if the TCP/IP protocol is not bound to the network adapter.

    User Action:

    Verify that the TCP/IP addresses configured in the Advanced IP Addressing dialog box match those configured in the Server Properties dialog box in DNS Manager: 1. Open Control Panel, and double-click Network. 2. Click the Protocols tab, and click TCP/IP Protocol in the Network Protocols list. 3. Click Properties, and click Advanced. Match the IP addresses to those displayed on the Interfaces tab of the Server Properties dialog box in DNS Manager: 1. In DNS Manager, right-click the DNS server name, then click Properties. 2. Click the Interfaces tab, and compare the IP addresses with those from the Advanced IP Addressing dialog box. 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all DNS servers configured in DNS Manager. If there are no IP addresses configured in the Advanced IP Addressing or on the Interfaces tab of the Server Properties dialog box, enter the IP address of your network adapter. Use the ipconfig -all command at the command prompt to obtain your IP address. Check the binding of the TCP/IP protocol to the network adapter: 1. Open Control Panel, and double-click Network. 2. Click the Bindings tab. 3. Verify that the bindings for all protocols to network adapters are enabled, and that no broken connections exist in the stack.

    The setting on my laptop for the linksys do not match the requirements of the linksys

    Make sure it does;

    If Automatic Configuration DHCP is enabled on the router your PC wireless or ethernet TCP/IP properties should also be set to "Obtain TCP/IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

    If your security is set to WEP your PC wireless network or ethernet connection properties should also to be set to the same authentication type.
