Nameserver slowness

Anyone else noticed that the Speakeasy nameservers have been miserably slow for the past few days? Simple queries are taking over a second to complete.

Yes. I think 66.92.224.2 is dead actually. I was seeing slow lookups, but tolerable on a couple machines. Then I booted a different linux config that only had the above nameserver, and no secondary configured. I couldn't resolve any names.

My secondary, 216.231.41.2, is working fine, as far as I can tell.

Maybe it's local to our segment.

I checked on my "My Speakeasy" page and that nameserver isn't even listed any more. Looks like they might have shut it down and forgotten to mention it to customers...

With the acquisition, I wonder how many other things are going to be shut down where they forget to mention it to customers.

Ah, ha. Yeah, I looked for the dns servers in MySpeakeasy but didn't find them. Now I see they are on the order page. I guess I didn't expect them to change that field, I thought it applied to my original install years ago.

Did this resolve your problem? I looked at email for the last month and don't see a notice, but maybe it occurred a long time ago (the notice) and I never updated.

I assume the response to the service ticket I just entered will say 'update your dns servers used.'

That is one of the advantages of a DHCP lease (even if renewals renew to the same IP(s)): you can force-update nameservers automatically.

Well, the ticket response was fast, if rather unimpressive:

"As DSL-related troubleshooting must be performed in real time while you are on-location with the issue occurring, please dial our 800 number [from a cell phone if possible] instead of updating the ticket online. We will have to complete several troubleshooting steps and line tests with your physical cooperation which may include disconnecting and reconnecting various hardware on your LAN. Agents are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in our call center at 1-800-556-5829."
I think I'll just close it after I update my dns servers. blah.

Anyone else have access to dig? What does a:
dig @66.92.224.2 dslreports.com
return for you? ";; connection timed out; no servers could be reached" for me.
