I have a PPPOE connection. The point is to use Comodo or any DNS server one has to enter the DNS ip in the local area connection tcp/ip. But in my case the DNS servers dont work. The DNS servers work when I enter it in my isp’s dialers tcp/ip. Now my question is should I enter the DNS in my isp’s tcp/ip only or for some reason I should enter it in both tcp/ip of isp’s dialer & lan? And should I enter it for ipv6 too? in the properties it is checked too along with ipv4? The system is win 7 64.
Unless your ISP offers native ipv6 or you’re using a tunnel from a tunnel broker, you don’t need to enter any details for this protocol, in fact you may as well disable the stack. Uncheck the box for ipv6 on the adapter and in a command prompt copy and paste the following:
netsh interface ipv6 set privacy state=disable
netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled
netsh interface ipv6 isatap set state state=disabled
netsh interface ipv6 set teredo disabled
I dont know what my isp uses. So I think I will let it as it is. Nothing entered in IPV6 properties. I have entered the DNS in ISP’s Dialers properties, & also I have Kept the Comodo DNS in LAN which was automatically installed by the CIS installer. Hope no prob.
DNS does not have any effect on your throughput. This is basically what DNS is doing:
Your computer - Hey, what is the IP address of whatever.com?
DNS service - xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Your computer - Thanks! -connects to server-
DNS plays no further part after you are connected to the server you were looking for. In other words, contrary to what many people think, switching DNS services will not make your downloads faster/slower.
What can happen, is that a third-party DNS service may send you to a different content server (or mirror) than your ISP’s DNS. One of these servers may be slower than the other. This is no fault of the DNS service.
I tried the same file downloading with both comodo & isp dns, open office & CIS. For both with comodo I got app 35kbps for CIS & app 24kbps for open office till the download completed. But with my isp I got app 120kbps for open office & app 223kbps for CIS till the download completed. So what could be the prob here. For ftp the scenario is app 17kbps with comodo & 90kbps with isp. I am from India, just thought to mention if it makes any difference using dns servers.
