Intermittent connection, DNS problems, etc.

New ATT DSL service in Los Angeles.

Been using the service a few days and keep getting intermittent failures of connection from browser and other apps.

 

I've had Internet service on Cable, DSL, LAN and 4G wireless, and I know what good service is, and this is not it.

Looking at the logs on the modem, appears to be ATT's own DNS server issues?

 

Logs filled with this:

2011-12-13T14:05:27-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: nameserver '99.99.99.153' is now responding 2011-12-13T14:05:52-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: no responses from nameserver '99.99.99.53' 2011-12-13T14:05:52-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: nameserver '99.99.99.53' is now responding 2011-12-13T14:05:54-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: no responses from nameserver '99.99.99.53' 2011-12-13T14:05:54-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: nameserver '99.99.99.53' is now responding 2011-12-13T14:05:55-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: no responses from nameserver '99.99.99.53' 2011-12-13T14:05:55-08:00 L3 dnsmasq[2612]: nameserver '99.99.99.53' is now responding

 

Is this how it is out here?

You could manually enter the DNS on your computer and use OpenDNS or Google DNS as your servers.
