    I have a Macbook Pro and have been using Microsoft Entourage to automatically connect to and download my e-mail from my college's mail server. All of a sudden my internet got really slow. I began looking around and found that it was probably a DNS issue so I added 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 to my DNS server list and my internet began to work nice and speedy like it use to. The only problem is that whenever I added these I can no longer access my school's mail server. At this point I am completely clueless and really don't want to have to pick between e-mail access and fast internet.

    Some things I have tried:

    I use my own router so I turned off airport and connected my computer straight into the hardline. No luck.

    Tried adding the DNS server of my router to my DNS server list. No luck.

    Any guidance would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Just use one of those addresses as a secondary address and use your schools address as the primary.

    That is what I am currently doing, but it is still not working. Sorry that I did not clarify that in the above post.

    more information

    Just some more information.

    My roommate's Dell is having no problems, he is connected to the same network.

    My friend's Mac is having problems when connected to my network

    My internet works fine when I am connected to a network in a different building
