[connectivity] New weird problem DNS server maybe??

All lights on modem always normal, attainable 5888/860, certain links will intermittently page cannot be displayed, refreshing usually works. Seem like DNS server bad, what do you think? Hit and miss been happening 48 hrs now all computers, modem was reset.

I use OpenDNS. Plug their IPs (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) into the DNS Server in the router setup, make sure your computers/devices are using the router as the default gateway. No more agita from VZ's sometimes spastic nameservers. (Note: This only fixes name resolutions issues...network routing problems is a different story.)

Changed to Open DNS 208.67... and all is well now. Changed on router but ipconfig/all still showed old so I changed on each computer as well. Thanks
