Under your ethernet connection properties do you have a dns server specified? or is it set to obtain automatically? If you know the address of your providers dns server put it in there, or if you are using a router put the routers address in their, the majority of routers forward dns requests.

Hope that helps

Go to www.opendns.com and change some settings on your computer. It's very simple to do and works a treat.


That looks like unnecessary crap lol.

goto control panel---> network connections----> then right click on "Local Area Connection"(the default name for it)

Then select internet protocol from the list(its at the bottom) and hit properties

in the bottom portion of the box that comes up is where the dns settings are.

Well, you're wrong. That website (and thier servers) have saved quite a few people from disaster. It helps your internet connection run more efficiently, helps stop phishing and other security problems and helps correct URLs that a written in wrong. A security forum I go to (used by professionals) strongly recommends using OpenDNS.

How does it make it run more efficiently?

How does it stop Phishing? That's a email threat, and theres this magic thing called a pop-blocker and common sense that stop any form of it in browsing.

Seems pretty pointless, unless you have the tendency to click on the "click here to claim your prize!" adds and if you can't type correctly or don't know what Google is.

It's also an alternative, a better alternative, than using the default DNS. Obviously alternative DNS servers are needed or else this thread wouldn't exist.

OpenDNS is not good - it's not Open in any sense, and serves adverts instead of 404s.

Use TreeWalk - same idea, but actually well implemented and not a load of bloat/adware.

Seriously, anyone recommending OpenDNS doesn't know what they are talking about.

DNS server errors are with your ISP half the time.

Well, most of the community at Wilders Security forums must not know what it's talking about then, and the thing about TreeWalk is that you have to download a program not just change your DNS settings. Also OpenDNS only gives adverts on only 2% of the 404's that occur (so it can make some kind of revenue). Also, calling OpenDNS 'bloat/adware' is just silly as you don't download any software and it can't possibly bloat your system in the slightest.
