Is anyone from BT reading this thread for it would seem not. I know some of the mods on here can be very helpfull at times but its like knowone is bothered about a problem that the BT status page said early has been fixed and has now been removed from the page.
I am getting some web pages to load up fine.
definitely, still issues with the DNS - my Sky Box and Xbox kept failing saying not connected to internet. Changed DNS on devices to Googles and working fine.
Ran the benchmark test on a pc and this reports the following
Usage Order Nameserver IP Speed Rank

3 8. 8. 4. 4 2
4 208. 67.222.222 1
5 208. 67.220.220 3
Which is showing that the BT DNS is not working as should
Im able to view some web pages but others seem to not load or only half load up.
I did have problems with my Samsung smart TV on wi-fi this afternoon while trying to watch music videos come to think about it.
Will see if the problem has been fix in the morning.
I'm getting this message, amongst others relating to Parental Controls, even though I've turned them off completely. Is this something related to the DNS issues people are describing?? I can't even connect to my VPN to try and circumvent this problem
You're seeing this page because BT Parental Controls is active and you are attempting to connect to a DNS server outside of our network. You may have selected a different server in your network settings or installed an application that uses an alternative service.
This is very irritating . I have had issues for the past 3 days . Some websites work other's don't load at all or take ages.
I also can not connect to any gaming servers. On my internet reliability test's it gives DNS as a reason for it.
I've tried changing to the google dns but it doesn't improve things in the slightest. I've tried every fix immaginable but to be honest there is nothing wrong on my end it's BT .
This needs fixing ASAP
It would help if posters would indicate the DNS servers their Hub is using so that the rogue ones could be identified.
Mine is currently using 184.108.40.206 with no obvious problems.
Note that BT can change what DNS servers your HUB 4 A uses remotely.
I would expect this is also true for the 5 A and 5 B also.
It is also worth checking that your problems have not been caused or cured by BT changing what DNS servers the HUB is using.
