Re: [TWC] Slow Connection in Cleveland (NEO)

said by thegoogs:

I've tried without a router (this is using a different computer, windows7 Home).

I've did a netalyzr and it returned the following result notably: Your DNS resolver returns IP addresses for names that do not exist

Full report at: »netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/resto ··· a69-a9eb

If you click the down arrow next to it, it takes you to an explanation that basically says TWC is intercepting DNS calls and routes you to a "google like" page with sites it thinks you were trying to access, with advertisements all over it. They do this to make money off of you mistyping links.


Thanks for the info. However, I will receive the TWC DNS pages that you mentioned even when I'm trying to access more common websites like facebook, metafilter.com, ubuntuforums.org
