Hi wzamil,


When you lose connection can you confirm how you establish that it is the DNS servers that are the problem. If you are receiving the standard Internet Explorer cannot display webpage message then although it does say that it is possibly DNS server issues this is not usually the cause. The cause could be that you have lost connection to the Internet completely and we would need to know what happens to the lights on your modem when the connection drops.

Kind Regards,
