      Trouble with intermittent pages - Change your DNS...SKYs' are poor...

      I was having problems with intermittent pages - sometimes I had to refresh this page 2 or 3 times to get it to appear, links on other pages just took an infinity and then timed out.

      SO i forced a DNS change using opensource dns and now my pages are whizzing in....Give it go if youre having trouble - its immediately reversible if it doesnt work.

      Double click your network connection on bottom right.
      then properties then scroll down to TCP/IP
      Now clcik on USE the following DNS and type in these numbers ( these are opensource numbers)
      208.67.222.222
      208.67.220.220
      click apply and see if it maes a difference - it made a massive difference with me, if doesnt just follw steps again and this time clcik obtain automatically to use SKYS again.

      Its only really going to make a difference if you have the type of connection where you click a link whether to or within a website and you ....wait....wait....wait...wait... connect and bang theres your page and then youre ok.

      Or you click a link and get page not found, click page not found, click page found.

      Not that this may happen every access etc, even just intermitently.

      Ive been surfing since I posted and Its made an INCREDIBLE difference to me.

      I have been using these for a few weeks and the difference is noticeable over F2S DNS servers.
