[DNS] DNS Server Not Working

DNS servers assigned by DHCP to me are 75.75.75.75 and 75.75.75.76.

However, 75.75.75.76 is not working. Is any one else seeing this?

[fred@iDEQscope ~]$ nslookup
> server 75.75.75.76
Default server: 75.75.75.76
Address: 75.75.75.76#53
> news.alt.net
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

That one is not assigned to me by DHCP. I am questioning the one that is and doesn't work.

It doesn't appear so.

75.75.75.75 is giving me a connection refused.
75.75.75.76 is timing out...

I'm not on a Comcast network atm...

other than the refused messages while trying via non comcast network, it's working fine for me...

Can you recheck your DHCP DNS server please? 75.75.75.75 and 75.75.76.76 are the correct DNS servers if you did receive 75.75.75.76 I will need to check the DHCP server.

PM me your cable modem MAC address please; that is if you did get the incorrect address.

Just choose Google's 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4 or 4.2.2.1 - 4.2.2.6 by GTEI.net and Level3. Personally I'd ping each and see which gives the lowest average ping response.

That is generally not advised - using your ISPs DNS servers should give you the best geolocation, and therefore speeds/response times from various CDNs and other services. Comcast is also one of the few that fully support DNSSEC.

FWIW, this appears to be a typo;

75.75.75.76

FWIW, that really doesn't tell the entire story.. Ping can be de-prioritized / rate limited.

Actual resolution time is a better way to gauge DNS prformance.

I use the Comcast DNS servers both as the default forwarders for my local DNS server, and also directly as secondary, tertiary, etc DNS servers. I have not and do not see any problems with any of the Comcast DNS servers that I use (some manually assigned, and some assigned by DHCP) including the official secondary AnyCast server 75.75.76.76 (I am going to assume that your use of 75.75.75.76 is a typo...if not, then your problem is not with DNS).

FWIW, all of the data displayed below was generated on my Windows server (which is also my local DNS server, and it would be the focal point of any DNS problem seen on my network).

                                       fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1
 
 







The results below show that 75.75.76.76 is a bit slower to respond than the other Comcast DNS servers, but it is still reliably responding to queries (the DNS servers with the red lines above and below the IP addresses are servers that did not respond, or responded incorrectly...none of the Comcast servers are in that category):

If you are not on the Comcast network, it is normal for the Comcast DNSSEC servers to not respond to DNS queries. That is by design and is part of Comcast's anti-spoofing protection.

Thanks for all the info. I haven't adjusted my DNS servers since the infamous days of Comcast's DNS servers having issues and that time when the someone hacked Comcast with DNS redirects.
