Trouble Accessing Some Websites with your ISP?

I've been having trouble accessing the BPI online website the past few days. After checking with the other PCs at home I figured it's not the Mac because they can't access it either. So that leaves the router and the ISP (we're using Smart Bro). Now, this geek stuff is beyond me. I swear I was thisclose to tearing my hair out.
I consulted our resident network expert at work and he directed me to this site. And miracle of miracles, it worked! All I had to do was to change my DNS server settings. 
Too bad, I almost *almost* had a reason to pre-order a Time Capsule
It's 1 Tb (that's 1000 Gb) of external memory that you can access wirelessly using WiFi. And it's also an 802.11 b/g/n router. ^^ I've been wanting to get one since it was launched (amidst the marketing hype that surrounded the Macbook Air).

I figured that if my current router is causing me pain then I should go get one (so the Time Capsule becomes a necessity). But now that I'm no longer having problems there's no reason for me to buy a new router and what little EQ I have I'm saving for the pink iPod. I guess I'll have to wait a tad bit longer for this one.

  1. yup. yan nga yun. hehe. ako rin naka static DNS eh, minsan kasi nawawala yung mga reference sa a-records ng local DNS ng ISP. Or baka kasi SmartBro gamit mo? haha
