    You may try these HK DNS servers:
    218.102.62.71
    205.252.144.126

    Good luck!
    Thanks, but those don't work either

    Actually wait a minute.. those are the standard Netvigator DNS servers.. of course they won't work!

    Thanks though

    Hi hk.com

    well seems fine in my side for 2 days already, also that it is the reason why i posted the url of proxy lists earlier. If you think its not a good idea then don't try it, don't even bother reading it.

    even if the proxy servers is congested from what i see its only 25% packet lost. then our regular 75% - 100% packet lost earlier
    just trying to help the folks who might need an extra hand. btw its okay you can always be the smart one.

    Take care

    My connection seems to be running a lot better this past half hour.

    I can even access gmail, which I couldn't access at all previously.

    Good idea about the p2p users, I wonder how many people are still using p2p's not realising the effect.

    facts in life.
    there's no way to make the world ideal.
    people who knows the fundamental will try to educate others, but the 'ignorants' (pardon usage of this word but its the most fitting i'd guess) would find it a chore and instead simply continue with the norm.
    yet, money are made from these people and you are not going to see infrastructure providers or s/w vendors stepping up the effort in education...

    so.. either one like hk.com screams daily and live in anguish, or simply just ignore it and treat it as part of life...

    I'm using it, because I'm screwed either way. If I can't do any work on my sites, I'll watch a Canucks game instead

    I am on PCCW Netvigator and still cannot access Yahoo - saw a news report that 80% of internet access is back to normal - this isnt correct, is it?

    I have tried to reset the Netvigator box, but no dice.

    Anyone else able to access Yahoo from home yet?
