- Why do i have 3 DNS servers listed in my connection settings, but i had no clue what a DNS server was until a few hours ago? It was my understanding that the owner of the computer and connection has to seek out extra ISP's and at least be aware that they want those addresses interconnected and able to share info. Am I wrong? If so how did I aquire these ISP's without my knowledge?

- dejazzd.com is D&E communications, the local telco (LEC) which offers 5 and 10 mbit service. 10mbit service is typically provisioned at 12230 PPPOA, resulting in 9.7 mbit/sec at the customer PC after passing through 3 h/w firewalls and 1 s/w firewall on an old 2.4 p4b 100 mbit port.
- zipcodes for Akron, Pa, + Ephrata, Pa + Lewisburg, Pa (bucknell Univ) are D&E communications (dejazzd.com).
One of the best, most reliable ISP's I've seen. Their service stays up and running even when there is a lightning storm/bad weather. 10 Mbit service typically provides stable 9.7 mbit at the PC *after* passing through 3 hardware firewalls and a software virus scanner. They market the service dejazzd. It is D&E communications. They are the local telco provider. the cable provider, penteldata (blue ridge communications) is not as fast or reliable.
