Getting Invalid MAC Address Error Message

For the past one week, I have been noticing slower Internet speed on my home computers without any reasons. I am not using any torrents or other bandwidth consuming tools on any of the PCs but recently one representative from my ISP informed me about over bandwidth usage. I inquired her about my reduced bandwidth but she said everything from their side was working perfectly. Since the ISP side is working perfectly, problem must be from our end. Perhaps some other user is using our wireless anonymously to access Internet and may be downloading large files. Airtel is my Internet Service Provider and my experience with them is so far good.

While troubleshooting the issue with the support person, he informed me that it was due to DDoS attack against their default DNS server and they might want a little bit time to resolve it. He suggested me to change the current DNS server I selected for my web address to backup DNS System. Though changing current DNS server may help to escape from DDoS attack, it can take up to 24 hours to see the result. To see the…

Solve GoDaddy Error: There is a Problem With the Information You Provided

GoDaddy is one of my favorite domain name registrars and I have been using their service for the past five years. They offer low cost domain name registration for the first year with a rate not many other registrars cannot offer. I have been using this privilege ( like 108 Indian rupees for a .com domain ) to register names for my projects but recently I faced an issue while placing the order. The system is not letting me to complete the transaction. At first I thought it is a common bug but sooner I discovered the true nature of it. Whenever I use GoDaddy promotion code to cut down the price, system shows error. Whenever I click on Place Your Order button, it responded with the following message.

There is a problem with the information you provided. Please ensure all fields are completed properly.


So many thoughts went though my mind after seeing this alert. I checked this situation without using their promotional code and that time everything was fine. There was no error message whil…
