DNS Problems

It appears Plusnet have had a few issues with DNS servers.

This has caused my iMac (MAC OSX Tiger + Safari) to not recognise any web addresses by name only by IP address.

I've entered the IP addresses of the DNS servers in my router (DLINK 604) as well as in the macs network preferences but all to no avail.

I can connect via ethernet on my PC so assume the connection is OK and the problem is limited to the set up on my mac (i've not changed anything prior to the problem so I guess it's linked to the DNS problems Plusnet say they've had)

I can connect via my neighbours wireless so I know Safari on the mac is working

Any mac users out there able to help?

Cheers

DNS Problems

If you can connect via your neighbours connect and see what dns they us and then set yours to use that. You can try 194.119.131.65 and 66 its worth having a dns from another server in your list.

Most routers get the dns from the isp so its not a good idea to enter one in let it find it from the isp. Try setting the Mac's dns to the ip of the router
