OpenDNS information

The developers of OpenDNS claim that the service makes Web surfing faster, but under normal conditions, any speed improvements it gains are nearly imperceptible. Certainly I didn’t experience a big change in service speed, nor any of our clients going to be bowled over by vast speed increases.

Why? Because overall data throughput still has a much larger effect on surfing speed than name resolution. It’s also worth noting that when name resolution doesn’t work, you simply can’t surf at all.

If your ISP is unreliable, you might at least try OpenDNS to see if your surfing woes are related to a DNS problem it can solve. Fortunately, OpenDNS is free for personal use and easy to remove, so you won’t suffer buyer’s remorse if you install it and never really notice what it does.

If you try the tool, drop us a note what your expirience is / was .

Network problem Vista

If you facing network connection issue, or more accurately unable to access or connect to Internet or network problem in Windows Vista, Windows 2003 and Windows XP, and repair WinSock settings plus workaround for Vista IE7 strange no connection problem do not save your from Internet woes, you can try to reinstall and reset TCP/IP stack or Internet Protocol, one of the core component of the operating system, which cannot be deinstalled.

Again, with a corrupt TCP/IP stack, the same woes may happen – unable to establish a connection to the server, unable to load a web page, unable to browse and surf the Internet, even though network connection to broadband router or wireless router appear to be OK.

When all means run out, try to reinstall the IP stack with NetShell utility. NetShell utility (netsh) is a command-line scripting interface for the configuring and monitoring of Windows XP, 2003 and Vista networking service.

To reinstall and reset the TCP/IP stack (Internet Protocol) to its original state as same as when the operating system was installed in Windows XP and Windows 2003, simply use the following command in command prompt shell. A log file name must be specified where actions taken by netsh will be recorded on newly created or appended if already existed file..

netsh int ip reset [ log_file_name ]

Example:

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

For Windows Vista, things work a little different due to introduction of UAC. Use this guide to perform a reinstalling of TCP/IP protocol in Vista:

  1. Click on Start button.
  2. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
  3. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator.
    Allow elevation request.
  4. Type netsh int ip reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
  5. Restart the computer.

The command will remove all user configured settings on TCP/IP stack and return it to original default state by rewriting pertinent registry keys that are used by the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) stack to achieve the same result as the removal and the reinstallation of the protocol. The registry keys affected are:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCP\Parameters\

Web site access problem

Perhaps the site was taken off line, or the computer hosting it is down for maintenance. However, the cause could be something more mysterious. At any given moment, a portion of Internet traffic ends up being routed into information “black holes.” These are situations where advertised paths exist to the destination, but messages – a request to visit a Web site, an outgoing e-mail – get lost along the way.

Hubble is a system that operates continuously to find persistent Internet black holes as they occur. Hubble has operated continuously since September 17, 2007. During that time, it identified 887,676 black holes and reachability problems.

Check out their web site , you will be surprised how many black holes are aout there in the cyber space…. even in Thailand….
