DNS Servers down?

Have they gone down?
Had to enter Google DNS servers into Network settings to get back on line!

Re: DNS Servers down?

No they haven't, we did have some routing issues that may have caused problems getting to DNS though. Should be OK now.

Re: DNS Servers down?

Have or had routing issues?  I can't get to DNS servers either and it's now 16:47.
OK with Google servers.

Re: DNS Servers down?

I'm still showing a big red cross on connectivity to the Internet thru' gateway 195.166.128.189!
Changing to Google DNS Servers cured the lack of browsing.  Huh Huh Huh

Re: DNS Servers down?

We're still seeing issues at the minute, we've got a <a href="http://usertools.plus.net/status/archive/1357659718.htm">service status</a> open and will update it as soon as we have more information.

Re: DNS Servers down?

Well I can't ping any Plusnet DNS servers as I've posted in the Announcement thread. Can the SS be update with the DNS issue please.

Re: DNS Servers down?

Hi there,
It's just been updated and that wasn't included because the DNS is only down when the routing issue is actually occurring. We'll make sure it's noted in the next update though, which should be later on this evening.

Re: DNS Servers down?

Have BT got an MSO or would pinging BT DNS servers be affected in the same way?
I'm not having trouble pinging other DNS servers! or loading anything else at the moment whilst I'm using alternative DNS.

Re: DNS Servers down?

I'm getting DNS related issues too - been flaky all day and pretty much died as of 17:00. Just changed servers to Open DNS and it's fine.

Re: DNS Servers down?

It's caused by the same issue, as Matt says we'll include it in the next service status update.

Re: DNS Servers down?

I've rather lost track of this.
Are the PN DNS servers still down?
I'm using google DNS just now 8.8.8.8 on this machine but the rest of my network seems to have lost it.
