Thanks for that! I didn't know about OpenDNS. I don't use Comcast,
but the same situation comes up quite often on trips -- lots of
motels that have wi-fi also have broken DNS, so you end up with an
IP and a connection to the internet but no DNS service. OpenDNS would
solve that problem nicely -- a good thing to remember when traveling.
