Bsnl Broadband speed trick


Tip
1: One of the major problems with BSNL Dataone Broadband connection is the DNS servers they provide by default. Most of the timethey are very slow and sometimes they fail to respond. I noticed that Iam starting to spend a significant amount of time in DNS resolutionwith Dataone connection, often it is larger than the time it takes toactually get the reponse. Here is a simple solution to significantly speed up your DNS resolution.

Open up the network connectionprofile and
edit TCP/IP settings. In the DNS server address fields,specify the following
DNS server addresses: 208.67.222.222 and208.67.220.220
Disconnect the connection and then connect again. You are done.

This specifies third party DNS servers which are significantly faster than BSNL Dataone’s DNS servers.



Tip 2: Firefox users can use FlashBlock extension to preventdownloading of Flash content by default, thereby significantly speedingup browsing experience. You can click on the placeholder icon todisplay the original Flash content any time. This is more of a passivetip in that reduces data usage to improve your overall experience.

Tip 3: You can try to increase your broadband bandwidth tweaking theTCP/IP parameters. The process is simplified by using TCPOptimizer, afree tool. It helped me, your mileage may vary.

Internet explorer cannot display webpage, dns script error? I can't play games anymore on worldwinner and I just played yesterday now I can't even bring up the website?


Internet browsers can pick up a multitude of problem while on the web, especially doing complex tasks like gaming.
Best to try to reset your IE by deleting your Cookies and Offline content.
In IE, under Tools, you'll find Internet Options. Go there. On that page you'll see Browsing History, and a button to Delete items. Push the Delete button and it will ask you what you'd like to delete. Delete at least your Cookies and all Temporary/Offline Content. Then close all your IE windows, once it's finished, then restart it and try your game website again. It should start up.
Additonally you might try Ad-aware from Lavasoft (it's free) as it will scan your computer for adware that may clog up your IE over time.

Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED)


This is a DNS problem. Simply turn off your router and then back on. If that doesn't fix it, then try turning your firewall off or grant access to port 53 in the firewall.

If you still have the problem after you have done all this, open CMD and type in this command:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Then press Enter and when finished type this one in, Enter and when finished restart your PC:
netsh int ip reset reset.log

DNS timeout error


Fundenmentals guys.

Type into the browser http://217.146.186.51

This happens to be yahoo ip address. If this works then you have issues with the DNS settings on your network. If not see item 2 below;

Check that via start/Run/cmd - this should take you to a black and white text screen.

type 'ipconfig /all' this will show the connections.
If you have more than one. It's wise to only have one currently connected.

Either Wireless or Ethernet. At the bottom of the list of numbers.

You should see 'DNS Servers' entry. Type 'PING ' then the IP address.

Normally 192.168.0.1 (Might be different so check!), If you get no reply then that's your answer.

Try changing the DNS settings via 'My Network Places/ View My Networks/' Highlight the Connected Network.

Then right click, select Propertise.

Then under 'This connection uses the following items' scroll down to the TCP/IP.

Select it. Then select 'Propertise' At the bottom. Obtain DNS server address.

Select Use the following. Then type the following Public DNS IP address into the first box. 66.93.87.2 and then the one that you found using IPCONFIG /ALL in the second.

This then will lookup the IP address for the URL's that you type into the browser. By asking the Public DNS server first. This is then unrelated to the way that you talk to the internet. (DSL/Corp etc)

Select 'OK' until you return to the Desktop. Open the browser and it should work. But the window system may need a restart for the settings to take effect. Depends on what OS is running.

Item 2:

If it does not then you have issues with you actual internet connection.

start/Run/cmd - this should take you to a black and white text screen.

Type 'tracert 217.146.186.51' then hit enter.

This will then show the route that the system is taking to get to the website.

If it shows the yahoo.com at the end your fine. Otherwise, it will pinpoint where the system is stopping.

If, it works then the issue is with the browser. Here is the Firefox address to download a better browser! - type into browser http://66.93.87.2 download!

Now, for those sorry chaps that stop, without reaching the end!!

Type in 'ipconfig /all' again. Check that the IP address you recieved is not 169.254.x.x as this indicates that the device that provides the IP number is having a bad day. Reset this device if you are able. Turn it off and Wait! Best option is make a cup of tea. Then turn the device back on. Let it have at least the time it takes you to drink your just made HOT tea before you retype 'IPCONFIG /ALL' We know you end users!

If you are using a wireless connection that states it's connected. Check that you have put WEP or Security key in correctly. It made state that you are connected. But running the IPCONFIG at command prompt normally says different.



Hope you all are now better.
