Tinuva, could you perhaps give the DNS server's IP address that you're using and the ISP package?
I'm not sure what the ISP's are doing, but I have like 80ms to www.google.com (when using the 126.96.36.199 IP address) and like 10ms to mail.google.com (when using 188.8.131.52 IP address) << When I'm using Stellenbosch University's proxy servers and Internet.
A friend of mine had 1 - 2ms response time to www.google.com from the MediaLab's connection, which is also at Stellenbosch University.
Update: kaisterkai, I have no idea what you're doing but you're definitely doing something wrong if you're the only one where this modification isn't working! When you ping one of those hostnames of the Google services, it should resolve to the local IP address. Perhaps you should provide us with your ISP package that you're using and also with the results of when you're trying to ping like mail.google.com, www.google.com, etc.
Everything else works, it's just that gmail doesn't work.. but I see someone here also has the problem with Gmail...
But I guess not having gmail isn't really such a big thing..
Anyway, thanks for the help.. I'll see what I can upload ^ ^
