Hi Scott,

What does ip/registerdns do? I've just remembered what one of ISP Customer Care guy told me -- to us ip/registerdns after flushing DNS. Well, I not very clear with: What is ip/registerdns? What it does? When it should be used and/or not to be used?

You mean the command "ipconfig /registerdns"? That command refreshes all DHCP leases and re-registers DNS names: http://tinyurl.com/2r4yu9

An easier and more complete option is to right click on the network connection and select "repair", which executes all of the following commands automatically:

Code:
ipconfig /renew
arp -d *
nbtstat -R
nbtstat -RR
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns


For more information see:

A Description of the Repair Option on a Local Area Network or High-Speed Internet Connection

If you are having DNS problems with your ISP, you could try http://opendns.com

Scott.

Yes, I guess it's the one -- ipconfig /registerdns.
Thanks.

Scott.


The network connection on the host shows only these menu items:

* Disconnect
* Status
* Change Windowss Firewall Settings
* Open Network Connections.

Probably, it's the Internet Network Connection. Do you mean the one for the LAN connection that is apparently not viewable?

Hi Scott,

How do you compare OpenDNS to OpenNIC?

I've never compared them. Try them both and let me know what you think. Scott.
