For over a year, we have been satisfied with our PLDT MyDSL internet connection as our main connection at home.
One thing I found disadvantageous with the PLDT MyDSL line is setting up the modem settings, especially after a PC reformat. When our home PC was struck by a Trojan horse, I had to make a system reformat. I had to call the support hotline regarding the settings of the IP address, the server address, and other modem settings before I can use the internet. PLDT MyDSL modem settings are not preset so you have to enter the settings manually after a system reformat.
So before everything gets messed up again, I copied the modem settings that I should enter every time I have decided to reformat.
To enter the modem settings,
- Go to Control Panel.
- Click on the Network and Sharing Center
- Right click on the PLDT MyDSL connection icon.
- Then click Configure.
- Enter these settings on their respective fields:
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Preferred DNS: 126.96.36.199
Alternate DNS: 188.8.131.52
DNS Server Addresses:
Of course you have to install your LAN driver first before you can start setting up your modem.
