PTCLS DSL Primary DNS Changed Now

Today afternoon when i turn on my computer and opens internet explorer type the hotmail address to check my e-mail but it fails.

then tries some other sites but all are failed to open.

this happen first time to me.

i was shocked what happens.

i check the ping status of both the default gateway and the DNS.

both pings are working correctly.

then i goto my modems page setting

check there everything was OK.

but browsing is not working.

in the end i re-start my modem

my modem took longer time to sync as it take usually .

it take about 3 minutes to sync

now i start opening hotmail, yahoo, gmail and other sites

and checked everything is working fine.

the issue is solved.

so i check my modem settings page.

in that page i saw PRIMARY DNS SERVER address is changed.

its a new address which i never saw before.

its the 5th DNS of PTCL.

my modem is set for automatic assigned DNS.

when i re-start my Modem it detect the new DNS and thats why take some longer time to sync.

I m informing you peoples and making this new thread.

so that you peoples will also tell here about any issue which u face like me.

thank u. though a bit late for me but thanks anyway.

in my modem page the primary dns is same 2-3.99.163.240 but the secondary dns is changed 202.125.132.12

the speeds issue is due to the problem at ptcl backend.

Have u used PTCL before? How is LDN as compared to PTCL?

in my modem (Huawei SmartAX MT880), i have to enter dns manually. so if possible let us all know the new dns you have found!

in fact write down all ptcl dns and which one is the new one and which one is the best?

I heard LDN are not having very satisfying customer service. Do LDN support ONU as well?
