    Been having lots of hostname issues especially with HTTPS, FTP and SVN with default / that Unifi uses, until I manually changed them to /

    Any other good and reliable DNS servers to fallback on?

    Google's DNS server? I've been using that for a long time. Some sites were 'blocked' by TM's DNS.

    I always use Google DNS - and

    Not only do they seem faster, they don't block certain "sensitive" websites that our government isn't fond of... :wicked:

    I heard that the Youtube is slowing even on Unifi and higher speed Streamyx - could it be the DNS issue as well?

    Really? Well, I don't think so. Once your computer gets the DNS translation to the actual IP and you get connected to the website, you shouldn't get slowed down thereafter.

    Yeah, Youtube is much slower than it used to be, but not related to DNS server.

    Oh, I thought it was my snail-paced Streamyx connection. I heard even the ones with the fiber connection have the same problem with youtube.

    The buffering mechanism in YouTube became from bad to worse year by year too. :faint:
