PacNet is so slowwww today
Category : Technology/pacnetslowDNSaddresses.txt
Seems like a day for short posts. PacNet users who are seeing a slow-down in web access to sites outside Singapore should add these two IP addresses into (and right at the top of) the DNS field of their Network Preferences set-up : 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
Looks like they're having problems with their usual DNS servers. These alternate DNS servers help a whole lot. Just don't tell them you're using a Mac. If you're unlucky to get a PC-centric support person, that's the first thing these guys always think is wrong.
If you don't want to be thrown red herrings, always tell them you're using a PC and then translate their instructions into the equivalent (and often shorter) concepts on the Mac.
