    Hi Guys,

    I use airtel broadband at my office and BSNL broadband at my home. Everytime i take my laptop to office or home, i need to change the preffered dns and alternate dns settings according to the connection. I want a common DNS setting that should work fine with both BSNL and airtel. When I choose " obtain DNS settings automatically" it is not getting connected. Pls help.

    Thanks in adv

    try google dns 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 in
    Network properties both in LAN and WLAN.
    mention modem/model/make/number used at home.
    Same DNS can be entered in Advanced options DNS menu.
    Check in laptop:
    Start RUn type cmd Ok
    New window
    Type ipconfig /all
    DNS should have changed.
    Test again in office.
    Feedback.
    EDITED:

    I changed preffered dns server to 8.8.8.8 and alternate to 8.8.4.4. It works fine at home now with BSNL. Let me try tomorrow at office for airtel and feedback. Thanks for your quick reply.
