Re: BT DNS again not working correctly

It's working fine for me.  When I've had problems, I can usually fix it by rebooting both the Home Hub and the PC.

Don't forget to go back to BT DNS server (Automatic) in case the DNS your using at the moment stops working correctly in the future Smiley Happy

Re: BT DNS again not working correctly

I reset all my pc, hub and open reach modem before I post here.
It's standard procedure I do when I have internet issues.

It wasn't working correct;y for about 45 min when I've change my DNS settings. Then I've checkied it again about 1h later, was still same.
When I checked it about 3h after initial broblem discovert it was all working fine.

Me and my frined we noticed that BT DNS server is playing up on regular basis 1-2 times a month.

Typical it's for about 20-30 min then is back to normal (unless it's like about 1h ago when it was f***ed for 2-3 days).

Re: BT DNS again not working correctly

I can't see the point of going back to BT DNS server (Automatic).

You're better off leaving it set to ones that are working rather than going back to ones known to be flaky

Re: BT DNS again not working correctly

Why use BT's DNS servers at all? It is totally unnecessary. You don't need openDNS as your secondary server.

 

You could have OpenDNS as primary and Google as secondary or visa versa.
