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 and and OpenDNS Public DNS IP addresses are and

Use Google Public DNS

Open Network and Sharing Center. Open your Network Connection Properties.

Select Internet Protocol Version 4 and click on properties.

Network connection 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 and respectivily.

Set Google DNS server for your connection

Fill these values for Google DNS servert

That’s very easy fix for this problem. Hope BSNL would take step to eliminate this problem in future.
