Thanks eljefe. I'll grab it and see if I've got Wine installed somewhere (yeah, I'm a **bleep** Mac boy :))

Hubrisnxs - 71.252.0.12 & 68.237.161.12 are the ones you prefer?

 


I like the 4.2.2.1 - 8

 

a small list of servers for Verizon DNS's can be found here.   I am not sure how current this is but this is the list people have gathered.

Yeah, those are not the default Verizon DNS servers. Each area has their own DNS server. Those are just the ones that are easy to remember so its the ones that most of the tech support guys use for troubleshooting and for entering static information.

My action tec had similar DNS servers. When I tried to ping them: 68.227.161.12  - it timed out. No responses

71.250.0.12 - 15ms response time. My I pad was dropping wifi, I could not access my verizon account, page not found, I could not access the system with Google Chrome: Method not supported.

 

I then said I have a DNS problem and tried OPEN DNS. The response time was under 10ms, Google Chrome worked and my IPAD is once again stable.

 

I believe the verizon DNS's are flakey at best.

Fast forward to August 2, 2017 and.... 
Thank you! Those are still the top ranked DNS ISP IP Addy's for Verizon FiOS (at least In Gaithersburg, MD) and I have two different sets of pictures and .INIs to prove it (See attached)!  OR go to https://www.GRC.com/DNS/BenchMark.htm download

the utility, run it 20170802-RCN-HSC_DNSBench-image.png20170802-VZW-FiOs_DNSBench-image.pngand you can spend the next 2 hours costumizing your own DNS configuration.

 

I ran the Gibson DNS Benchmarking Utility from soup to nuts twice on two distinct compatible  HiSpeed ISPs (~75Mbps Up/Down) Verizon FiOs and RCN

(Formerly Starpower & Erols) 

 

Thank you all for your contributions!   

 

The play by play:

@UberGEEK opens up and gets scolded by @ElJefe.  Only to be assisted by @HubrisNXS which in turn keeps The Boss @ElJefe in check. (Officiating early this morning is ME @AAdamAnTium Arbitrations).

 

THE STANDINGS:

 

  1. 8.8.4.4  Google DNS
  2. 8.8.8.8  Google DNS
  3. 4.2.2.1   Level3 - Level 3 Communications
  4. 4.2.2.2  Level3 - Level 3 Communications

  7. 4.2.2.5  Level3 - Level 3 Communications
  8. 4.2.2.6  Level3 - Level 3 Communications 

......9, 10, 11, etc... MegaPath, Cogent , LVLT-3549 (L3 Comm.)

 

   16. 068.237.161.014:  UUNET - MCI Communications

   17. 071.252.000.012: UUNET - MCI Communications

 

Here in the future we also have something called OpenDNS and you can Google it from your Android O Smart Device!

 

PeaceOut!
