Softbank BB DNS Server IP addresses

Filed under: Hacks? — admin @ 2:13 am

I pay a significant amount of money, (around $55/mo) for my 100Mb VDSL connection here at home in Tokyo. I did not wish to pay the $6/mo rental fee to use their router, so I build my own using ClarkConnect. The problem is that they would not give me the DNS information? Are you kidding me? They didn’t even know what “DNS server IP address” was. I talked to two different technical support groups but was very disappointed with the Softbank technical support. Finally, I told them I bought my own router, and they transferred me to the second technical group who told me that there was a $20 fee for configuration setting information. Asses. Anyways, after hacking around a little in the Japanese Router OS, I found what I was looking for. I figured I’d post them here for anyone else who may be looking for them.
