I am trying to use Mts mblaze on ubuntu 10.10. I am getting downloading speed of more than 100kb/sec but browsing is too slow as its taking too much time for dns look up. Google.com is working perfectly fine, but when i am trying to click on any search result i am getting same issue, too slow..

Any solution?

Check out your pings with the web site you use to check to quality of your connection.

ping ip/host

If you are sure it's a DNS issue, then try these DNS:

4.2.2.2

4.2.2.1

Should perform faster than your ISP's DNS provider.

You can test your dns speed with the dig command, ie: dig www.google.com

If that is the problem, you can setup dns caching by installing resolvconf and a dns server (or cacher?), ie: sudo apt-get install dnsmasq resolvconf

There are other dns servers you can use, like bind9; I think they are listed in the resolvconf package description. I don't know what the difference is though.

If the problem is with MTS's DNS servers, you could try using other DNS servers, such as OpenDNS, Google or Scrubit.

If you hunt around you may find some open DNS servers in India which may have less latency being closer to you.

Most probably the problem is with the DNS resolution. Most ISP's in INDIA ( Mine included) have poor resolution rates. I would suggest you to use the OpenDNS servers as they are not only fast but give you additional features like domain-blocking and shortcuts.

The IP Addresses are

208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

Let us know if you face any problem.
