Using Smart Bro? Use OpenDNS

Ever experienced going to a website and your browser will display: Page cannot be displayed?

The computer unit that we share for internet surfing at home uses Smart Broadband. It is not once that I have to call their Customer Service Hotline just to ask them to refresh their DNS Servers, because we are trying to access a website, which we firmly know that is online (because is the host) and does exist, but gets the “Page cannot be displayed” error over and over again. It only means one thing, the DNS Server of my ISP is broken.

Now, if you do not want to spend wasting your time calling your ISP just to request them to refresh their DNS servers (based on my experience, they will act on it after 48 hours), you may want to use OpenDNS instead? OpenDNS will let you use their DNS Servers, instead of the ones provided by your ISP. In this way, we can be assured that we are browsing the latest version of the website, and it also gives you a safeguard against phishers and scammers, as they try to block websites that fall to these categories when you surf to them.

  1. Hello. I’ve been using OpenDNS ever since i’ve experienced Smart Bro’s reoccurring issues. And it’s worth it. OpenDNS is something I am proud of knowing about. Thanks to OpenDNS, I am now experiencing better, safer, faster internet experience!

  2. well, opendns works well with smarbro canopies, BUT FOR SMARTBRO WIRELESS. i’ve changed my sb wireless’s dns to opendns and it would not fix the problem. can anyone here using sb wireless with same problem?

  3. I have tried implementing OpenDNS at my school a couple times and it makes the internet SO slow. We are using Smart Bro wireless broadband. Anyone else experiencing this issue? The Smart DNS servers are WAY faster for some reason…
