    Anyone else having problems with Comcast the last couple days? I found a workaround at broadband reports that seems to work just fine for me.
    You can change your dns settings until Comcast gets things sorted out again:sigh:
    If your using Xp it's real easy.
    1. Right click on My network Connections and select properties.

    2.Right click on Local Area Connection and select properties again (if more than one make sure it's the one for your cable connection)

    3. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and hit the properties button.

    4.Change the default Obtain DNS server automatically to Use the following DNS server addresses. Enter 2 from the list of connections below, and hit ok Thats it :)

    Some DNS servers I reccomend:
    4.2.2.1
    4.2.2.2
    4.2.2.3
    4.2.2.4
    4.2.2.5
    4.2.2.6
    These are all DNS server addresses that resolve differently across the country. Some are GTE, some Level3, some Verizon, but are all VERY speedy and work well. Some also reccomend using the ORSC's public servers, one of which is 199.166.24.253. I have not used this server, but others say it is fast.
    dadkins adds these DNS servers:
    SpeakEasy Nameservers
    66.93.87.2
    216.231.41.2
    216.254.95.2
    64.81.45.2
    64.81.111.2
    64.81.127.2
    64.81.79.2
    64.81.159.2
    66.92.64.2
    66.92.224.2
    66.92.159.2
    64.81.79.2
    64.81.159.2
    64.81.127.2
    64.81.45.2
    216.27.175.2
    66.92.159.2
    66.93.87.2
    ORSC Public Access DNS Nameservers
    199.166.24.253
    199.166.27.253
    199.166.28.10
    199.166.29.3
    199.166.31.3
    195.117.6.25
    204.57.55.100
    Sprintlink General DNS
    204.117.214.10
    199.2.252.10
    204.97.212.10
    Cisco
    128.107.241.185
    192.135.250.69

    I'm currently using the first 2 from the ORSC they seem quite fast according to the site test I ran there. I copied the list from broadband reports the comments in the list are not mine.
