I changed my isp dns to and and i did a trace route and ping on yahoo.com and i found 2 different results

C:\Users\avs>nslookup www.yahoo.com
Server: b.resolvers.Level3.net

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: ds-any-fp3-real.wa1.b.yahoo.com
Addresses: 2001:4998:f00b:1fe::3001
Aliases: www.yahoo.com

now the ping

C:\Users\avs>ping www.yahoo.com

Pinging ds-sg-fp3.wg1.b.yahoo.com [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=259ms TTL=48
Reply from bytes=32 time=134ms TTL=48
Reply from bytes=32 time=258ms TTL=48
Reply from bytes=32 time=79ms TTL=48

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 79ms, Maximum = 259ms, Average = 182ms

You can try many different dns find one that is right for you.

Just remember after you change your dns you need to open a command prompt and type each command below and hit enter after each.

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns

Then reboot your machine. :thumbup2:

C:\Users\avs>nslookup www.yahoo.com
Server: b.resolvers.Level3.net
NSlookup is returning what the DNS server address is.Address:
Ping is returning what the actual IP address of yahoo. <>
