In the NY area and DNS for VZ not working.  Moved my DNS from VZ to Google and working. Anyone else have this problem?

In VA, same issue here....EVERYTHING, including verizon, is giving me a DNS error through the Fios network. (note: not a techie, so off to find out instructions on changing my settings so I can use my internet at home...)

I changed our router to Open DNS

208.67.222.222

208.67.220.220

and it does appear faster so far.  Want to keep ahead of any future issues.
