Must do: Tweak BSNL Broadband DNS to...

I am using BSNL Broadband services since August 2005 and due to lack of any other alternatives had to stick only to our sarkaari offerings. The web browsing experience has been simply pathetic with error message "Page not found" coming again and again even for prestigious websites like Hotmail, Yahoo! including Google.

Today i came across an article posted on TechnoHacker, after reading which my same 5 year old BSNL modem has started to do some wonders. Its actually not the modem but the DNS which did the whole thing.

Actually BSNL DNS servers sucks. This is one of the major problem that everyone is facing, most of the time they are damn slow and sometimes they fail to respond. But now things have changed for me and the same can be for you too!

So here is a simple solution to speed up your DNS resolution provided by OpenDNS.

The below mentioned solution is for those who are dialing the connection from their desktop. 
  1. Open Control Panel -> Networking and Sharing Center -> Manage Network Connection.
  2. Now a window showing all networks will be opened. Select BSNL Connection -> Right click -> Properties.
  3. Now, double click on Internet Protocol Version(TCP/IPv4) and in newly opened window at bottom, select “Use the following DNS Server address” .
  4. And fill these 2 DNS Addresses in two fields: Primary DNS as 208.67.222.222 and Secondary DNS as 208.67.220.220
and hit OK. That’s it. Your BSNL Internet Broadband DNS Servers changed.

In my case, like majority of guys, i am using auto-dial feature of the modem. Simply log-in to the modem by typing IP address 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 as the case may be, in your web browser and login into your modem/ router. The default user name is admin and so is the password.

Change the DNS settings from there by un-select the Auto-DNS option  and manually add Primary and Secondary DNS from OpenDNS as mentioned above.

And you are done! Enjoy the actual lightning speed of BSNL BroadBand now!!!
