Solve DNS Error In BSNL Network Connection
Yesterday i faced a new wired problem when i was trying to open a website which i am developing right now. Whenever i try to open that website in any browser in my computer it was showing ” Server not Found. Dns lookup failed”. But my friend from other city said that that website was loding fine and fast on his computer. So i made a quick Google search and started spending my time to find the solution,
After some search i found that there is some problem with my DNS server. And now when i am using GREAT BSNL as my internet service provider, this is a common problem with BSNL DNS servers that sometimes they don’t work for some time. Solution is you can change your DNS server. Here is how you can configure your network adapter to use a different DNS server. You can use either Google Public DNS or OpenDNS. I used Google Public DNS.
Google Public DNS IP addresses are 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 and OpenDNS Public DNS IP addresses are 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
Use Google Public DNS
Open Network and Sharing Center. Open your Network Connection Properties.
Select Internet Protocol Version 4 and click on properties.
Fill the following value in DNS server addresses field. These values are for Google DNS server. If you want to use OpenDNS replace following fields with 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 respectivily.
That’s very easy fix for this problem. Hope BSNL would take step to eliminate this problem in future.
