Stable Rogers DNS IP Addresses

What are some of the DNS IP Addresses used for Rogers internet? Especially since I'm now on gigabit internet.

I've been using the below ip addresses for a few years and have from time to time had issues with slow websites and buffering. I've used these IPs with Rogers and Fido.

64.71.255.198
64.71.255.202

202 seems to have a lot of packet loss just pinging for 10 minutes and since I have moved to Google DNS, but would like to stick to Rogers DNS or use it at the very least as a backup.

Re: Stable Rogers DNS IP Addresses

Hello @JonSnow88,

Not sure about current Rogers DNS (CODA-4582 does not display them in the GUI), but I am using Google DNS (8.8.4.4 and 8.8.8.8) on my primary computer with no issues.

If you are using the Hitron Modem then I just set DNS to AUTO in the web GUI of the modem. 

I've had no issues with the Rogers DNS servers in the last couple of years. 

You can download a program called "DNS BENCH" to benchmark local DNS servers, but it's always showed Rogers as the fastest for my connection.

Re: Stable Rogers DNS IP Addresses

I am using the white CODA modem but in bridge mode and wanted to know what ip addresses the CODA modem defaults to so I can set the same on my router.

I know I can use google DNS but prefer to use Rogers DNS instead.

Rogers IPV4 DNS:

 

64.71.255.204
64.71.255.198

 

Primary IPv6 DNS:

2607:f798:18:10:0:640:7125:5204

 

Secondary IPv6 DNS:

2607:f798:18:10:0:640:7125:5198

 

If you don't set the DNS addresses in the router or in your pc/laptop/mobile device, then the router will use the Rogers DNS addresses as supplied by the CMTS.  The connected devices will then use those same addresses.  So, you really don't have to do anything unless you want to use another DNS such as Google, OpenDNS, Quad9, etc.  

 

Just to note, from Ottawa, there is a difference in response times for the IPV4 Domain Name Servers.  64.71.255.204 provides a response of about 15 ms, while the 64.71.255.198 response time is about 30 ms.  If you want to clock the response times, so that you know which one is faster from your location, take a look at the following post:

You can run Dns Monitor to check the IPV4 DNS response times over a period of time, and plot them with Wireshark if you're interested.
