I have been experiencing slow internet for the past 2 nights, both thru DiGi BB as well as DiGi Turbo 3G. (I do notice certain websites were more affected than others).

(I'm in George Town, btw)

At my wits' end, I remembered DiGi having a similar problem a couple of years ago when everyone couldn't get to specific sites like BBC. So I tried the solution I found last time and used the OpenDNS.com DNS addresses:
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
Looks like the same temporary solution from last time still works. sweat.gif

Still, I need to yell at someone at 016-2993333 tomorrow. mad.gif

Not sure, but the settings is at the "dialer", so should be for all internet coming thru

I have to give credit where credit's due; yesterday's speed was good compared to the 2 previous nights.

Suspect the DiGi network sometimes uses dodgy DNS servers, and during that time the network slows to a crawl.

Too lazy to do my own screenshots, so here's a link (for Vista):
http://www.plus.net/support/domains_and_dns/dns/changing_dns_vista.shtml

There are two fields for DNS servers: Preferred and Alternate.

As for the actual DNS IP addresses, I've posted somewhere here in the DiGi Broadband section before tongue.gif
