Give it a bit longer, see if it helps a bit longer term. It's not going to hurt using them for a while longer.

If it does solve the problem, then you can change the settings in your router so that these numbers are given to all devices (phones, laptops, etc). It's a better solution than changing each device - you may forget to change them back when you go elsewhere.

There may also be alternatives you can use that are quicker - 3 seconds is a bit pants. I did notice they were slightly slower than the ones I was using.

Let us know how you get on later and we'll dish up appropriate destructions :thumbright:




edit: it's a temp fix for YOUR computer only. We can change that later....it's just a test atm ;)

In addition, I see talk talk have a few servers.

You can try these to see which works best for you:

Primary DNS: 62.24.199.13
Secondary DNS: 62.24.199.23
Tertiary DNS: 62.24.128.18
Additional DNS: 62.24.128.17

If these are better, again we can change stuff.....

Thanks for all the help BG, I think we are going for a new provider, Daughter had a megga row with talktalk customer services in Mumbai or wherever?
One of her lecturers told her to ring and ask for her MAC code, :dunno: and they would move heaven and earth to sort the problem in order to keep her as a customer.
My daughter is 22 and I have never heard her swear, but my wife told me she gave both barrels to a talk talk supervisor.
Apparently she called and asked for the code, and ended up talking to someone who's grasp of the English language was not too good, after a minute or so,as she was getting nowhere she asked if she could speak to an English speaking supervisor, woman eventually came on the line and asked why she could not deal with the first person, not wanting to cause offence in any way she said her hearing was not to good so she was having difficulty understanding what was being said, supervisor replied perhaps you would have been better e-mailing us then, to which my Daughter replied "I would have if the fcuking internet was working properly", and then gave her chapter and verse.

My laptop has never been so fast since changing the settings, so I only get to use it now when she's not in ::b.
Think she's looking at BT you view package at the moment.

Thanks once again I'm sure I will be back on, when whatever new package she goes for arrives. :lol:
