Hi All!

I am sick of the huge number of downtimes BSNL dataone broadband has. So I thought I may create this thread, where people may post the time and duration of any downtime they might have had.


Let me start:

26/5/2008 3:20 PM to 27/5/2008 11:45 PM

Thats due to rickety DNS of BSNL:|

change to open DNS, you would be fine

^^ i tried using 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 .. they work only ocassionally.. :(
I think the problem is due to BSNL IP address. With some IP Adresses, I experience lots of problem. Restarting the modem helps. And yes, OpenDNS is awssome. I think you have the wrong one. I remember the number 3 in it somehow...

lol, The IP you said are BSNL dns servers
I was talking about this
OpenDNS is a better DNS service. We make your Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable. It's free, and there's nothing to download.
OpenDNS

They are very much reliable. but these days there are some issues with it. Sometime Google.com does not open sometimes but all other sites including Google's own services are unaffected like Gmail. which Opendns guys are working to Fix the problem soon. For now that i am running my own DNS caching only server but this procedure is only for Linux based machines

for windows there is a temp workaround also available. open c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file in Notepad
Code:
Enter “202.169.0.36 www.hactl.com” and “202.169.0.42 www.hacis.com” entries at the bottom
of the hosts file.
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#
# <IP address> <site name>
# source server
66.249.70.55 www.google.com

alternative, you can use ping command to find its IP address
START>RUN>CMD>PING www.google.com

Service Period : 3 years

Downtime : Once or twice (the service was fine, the modem gets bricked every now and then, thanks to my networking expertise !! :) )

Oh no, i am not a fan-boy of BSNL, i have had my share of pains especially with the billing. Back in 2005, BSNL had implemented free usage upto june 30th. I used to download like hell on those days. By july 2005 i got a 8k bill, the accounts department didnt knew (they had claimed so) about this free download thingy.

Then i got 20k bill for using the credentials of an official of Data Network Systems. This guy happened to be the DGM (Tech). The accounts officer said they had planned a vigilance case against me ( oh no!! ), but it was dropped i think*.

*Now if u don't find me loitering in here for a long time, u know where to find me !!
