DNS or Domain Name Servers map the alphanumeric domain or website names to the actual IP Address of the Server where they are actually located. MTNL/BSNL default name-servers are often sluggish and unresponsive which directly leads to very high loading time when you open a website.To remove this you have to change the Default nameservers of BSNL/MTNL network by the following means:
- Head to Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center/Network Connections -> Open “Local Area Connection” and click on “Properties” button.
- Now click on “TCP/IP” and in the DNS address fields, replace the current DNS servers with the following two addresses.”18.104.22.168” “22.214.171.124“.You can also also Google DNS Servers which are “126.96.36.199” and “188.8.131.52”
