Can’t connect to the Internet – use open DNS

Sometimes the ISP’s can be somehow annoying. You have some functions of your Internet connection working, look at the router and everything seems right, refreshed DHCP and nothing, no juice, you just can’t get the pages to load.

Today I came around this same exact problem and with a little help of a co-worker and friend I learned a sweet hack that will just fix this kind of issue.

Go to your router configurations, or your PC / Mac configurations and set these 2 DNS entries:

DNS1: 8.8.8.8
DNS2: 8.8.4.4

This will use a open DNS – Google – to get your pages through.

Nice trick and good hack. Kept as resource.

Have fun.
