Fix for PLDT myDSL DNS Problem

It looks like the (selective browsing) problem with PLDT myDSL happens when you set your DNS to automatic.

There's a couple of solutions:
1. Set the DNS manually at the TCP/IP Connection setting. Here are some of PLDT's DNS servers:
58.69.254.3
58.69.254.4
58.69.254.8
58.69.254.9
58.69.254.43
58.69.254.46
58.69.254.70
58.69.254.72
58.69.254.103
58.69.254.104
58.69.254.106
58.69.254.133
58.69.254.134
58,69.254.135
58.69.254.137
202.57.96.4
203.87.128.3
203.172.11.21
203.172.11.25
203.172.11.26

2. Use Opendns servers: simply use the ff in the DNS setting
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

Just be aware that there have been reported cases of Opendns blocking some google pages.

I used the first PLDT DNS server listed above and it has solved my problem completely. I also noticed webpages loading faster than before.

Hope this fix is going to hold up.

3. Update >>> You can now use Google DNS
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Hope this helps.

I used 58.69.254.3 as preferred but you can choose any of the others listed.
I use opendns for alternate.

hey sir. wouldn't you be charged for an extra amount if you choose to connect with one of these server DNS? :> Moreover, wouldn't anyone's PC connected to any of those DNS servers be visible to other people... such as hackers? :>
