DNS servers for Vibe Communications

My modem, a CNet CAR2-804, returns DNS responses on a non-authoritative port. This causes 30 second lookup delays in Linux and timeouts in Windows 7. The workaround is to use an external DNS server instead. I set this up manually on each machine.

The settings for my machine are taken from my ISPs support page: (recorded here because I always forget where to find them)

  • 14.1.33.1
  • 120.136.0.25
