Re: DNS Issues with BHN?
said by BHNtechXpert:Hi Gary,
I know you are going to hate this but I'm not concerned with GRC's benchmark for a multitude of reasons that span over a decade. Suffice it to say...not a lot of faith in his benchmarks.
Lets stay focused on the isssue with what we know. I'm going to reach out to TiVo later today and and see what's going on.
Also need you to make sure you are running the latest (most reliable) version of 655 firmware. That unit has been extremely buggy firmware wise over the years so just to be safe (yes I realize others are reporting similar issues).
Also how many of those are actually on BHN's network? Are you the only one?
For what it's worth...my TiVO is not having any issues like this....
I will check the firmware version on the 655 and report back. I have purchased the new Asus router that I haven't installed yet as well.
A colleague of mine, also on BHN, ran a different benchmark recommended by Google last night called Namebench. His results are below. He is in Pinellas county. Notice the timeouts on the BHN results?
I really don't think this is a TiVo issue. Since you don't like GRC's DNS Benchmark do you have a recommended alternative? Do you like Namebench better?
Here is a link to Namebench --> »code.google.com/p/namebench/
