Total Access Networks Chooses OpenDNS; Passes Speedy, Safe, Reliable DNS on to Internet Users Worldwide

Total Access Networks Chooses OpenDNS; Passes Speedy, Safe, Reliable DNS on to Internet Users Worldwide

Internet reseller sending 1 million DNS requests to OpenDNS daily

SAN FRANCISCO – May 7, 2007 – OpenDNS, the DNS provider that makes the Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced Total Access Networks Inc. is using OpenDNS to offload the 1 million DNS requests hitting its in-house cluster of servers daily, saving resources and CPU process time and providing an overall better Internet experience for its broadband and wireless clients. Total Access is a leading provider of managed Internet services and connectivity for thousands of individuals and organizations worldwide. OpenDNS is the world’s-largest, fastest-growing DNS service.

Texas-based Total Access selected OpenDNS over BIND and other internal and external options because it gives Total Access a clear edge over competition – it’s free and its feature set far exceeds anything else offered with a DNS service.

"While my competitors fight to learn DNS, they waste valuable resources," said Ted Green, CEO of Total Access. "With OpenDNS we have been able to complete several internal and external Internet projects that had been sitting on the back burner, since all of our resources are not tied up correcting issues with faulty DNS. Getting the projects completed means we provide a better service. We get back to installing, doing what we do best, and let OpenDNS handle the DNS from this point out."

Unlike other services that take weeks to deploy, it took only days to get OpenDNS completely up and running for all networks managed by Total Access. The Internet reseller now successfully sends 1 million requests daily to the OpenDNS servers and is pleased to know OpenDNS is entirely scalable - the more people using OpenDNS, the more addresses its caches are holding at any given time and the faster lookups resolve. Since its launch in June 2006, OpenDNS has delivered 100 percent uptime.

"I personally checked out OpenDNS and was blown away by the results," said Green. "No matter how small or big your company grows, DNS is a foundation staple of every ISP environment. We are excited to have OpenDNS as a service partner providing high-quality, fast DNS services to my customers around the world."

DSL Modem Setup

Modem Setup:

1. Installing Phone Filters:

You must install the included Phone Line Filters on every device (phones, fax machine, satellite receivers etc.) that is connected to the same line as your new DSL.

2. Installing DSL Modem

1. Plug the included Phone Line Splitter into your Wall Jack. If you are going to be using another device (phone, fax machine, satellite receiver etc.) plug-in one of your Phone Line filters into the Splitter and then plug your phone into the filter. On the other side of the splitter hookup your DSL modem directly with the supplied phone cable. Be sure to plug it into the LINE or DSL port on the back of your modem.
2. Make sure your computer is turned off.
3. Take the supplied Ethernet cable and plug it into the LAN or ETHERNET port on the back of the modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the Ethernet port on the computer.
4. Plug the supplied power cord into the modem and then into an available plug nearby. Once you plug-in the power supply, the modem will turn on automatically. If there is a switch on the back of the modem make sure to flip it to the ON position.
5. Once the READY, SYNC/PPPoE or LINE light on the front of the modem stops blinking, turn your computer on and you will be ready to surf the internet!
6. If the READY, SYNC/PPPoE or LINE light continues to blink for longer than a few minutes and it is PAST your scheduled due date for DSL, please call our Technical Support.
