Google as your DNS Server

Recently I was unable to access Facebook while travelling in another country. I got an error message that DNS lookup failed. A friend using the same wireless router could access it. I rebooted and tried multiple browsers. My friend pinged facebook to detect their IP address and I tried entering it manually. Still no luck.

Finally, the solution was to change the DNS server to use Google’s DNS server. Who knew Google offered that service?
