A Paradise DNS address change? What change? There was no change.

So I found myself without Internet access before leaving for work this
morning and after work I still had none. Paradise technical assistance
asked me to ping the DNS address: 203.96.152.4. What?! 203? I've been
using 202.96.152.4 for four years, and was never told of any other. The
tech guy wasn't familiar with the old address and as far as he's concerned
it was and remains 203.96.152.4. I hate days like that.

Tony.

Umm.. 202.96.152.4 belongs to some company in China.. I think you must of
mistyped/misread it in he past and now 202.96.152.4 doesn't work then your
blaming Paradise

I also presume you had a secondary DNS Server set as well??

Thanks
Craig

I wonder if the guy who was going on about running his own DNS server to
speed things up had the same misconfiguration issue...

the Web. For Microsoft Windows® XP/2000/.NET and 2003 workstations or
servers. If you wish to use it as a Mail Server or Web Server DNS
application, please contact http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed) for important details.

So.... My notes say 203, too, which means I've had ~the~ most acute brain
fart in all my life. I was absolutely sure it was 202, you know.

After losing net access I didn't take note of the DNS values before trying
the cable modem on a different ethernet connection, and when that plan
failed, when back to the original connection but plugged in the wrong DNS
values.

Tony.

It's been 203.96.152.4 since at least 1999 when I got a paradise.net
cable modem from (then) Saturn.
