Re: Amazon streaming now unwatchable - Time Warner limiting???

I know this is about Amazon and I don't want to hijack this thread but Netflix is streaming terrible tonight for me. Tried everything I can think of so I gave up. The reason why I posted this is because Netflix uses Amazon CDN.

Did you try changing your DNS servers and adding a firewall rule to block traffic to/from 206.111.0.0/16?

Different DNS servers can lead to different CDN servers. Using Google's DNS may lead to an overloaded off-net link or server where using TWCs DNS servers may lead to a dedicated link and/or an on-net caching server.

You should try different DNS servers to see if there is a difference. Trace routes would help show the difference.

If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.

ok next time there is a hiccup i'll switch between google, opendns, and twc and see if there is a difference.
