Re: [IL] mediacomcable.com

it was a dns issue with mediacom.. plain and simple..
Tracing route to www.mediacomcable.com [126.96.36.199]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 2 ms 2 ms 1 ms 192.168.1.1
2 10 ms 12 ms 18 ms 10.132.42.1
3 * * * Request timed out.
4 * * * Request timed out.
5 * * * Request timed out.
6 * * * Request timed out.
7 * * * Request timed out.
8 * * 10.132.42.1 reports: Destination net unreachable.
See that in bold up there? In that whole traceroute, all DNS does is convert www.mediacomcable.com to 188.8.131.52, which was successful, otherwise you'd have gotten 'www.mediacomcable.com... unknown host'. The fact that you couldn't get there had nothing to do with the DNS. It was a network issue.
