Re: DNS preggers again

Are you on wireless Liam or wired? If on Wireless, I wonder if it's worth giving this a try after seeing reference to it elsewhere on these boards recently?

Getting strange results on a ping -t.  Because it is intermittent in nature it'll not respond or take a long time one time, then try it a second later and it'll work.  But it keeps doing it.  On a ping -t the latency to it just keeps shooting up to 140ms+ every now and then.  I get better latency to the US normally.

Hi liam,
looks like youre a windows box, if you download mtr for windows ( http://winmtr.sourceforge.net/ ) - its an easy to use traceroute tool that will provide you with some stats on possible packet loss/ latency etc.
A ping result will only show final destination information where the actual bottleneck could be a prior hop (router)

Re: DNS preggers again

Hello,
Once again I seem to be having problems browsing the web. The symptoms are allways the same and tend to occur every 3-4 weeks or so. My router says I'm connected but I can't connect to anything (web, email, etc).
I've been told to connect to the master socket, change the filter and use the following manual settings for DNS, which I have done:
primary: 212.159.13.49
secondary: 212.159.13.50
I've tried:
C:\Documents and Settings\Cartman>tracert bbc.co.uk
Unable to resolve target system name bbc.co.uk.

Here's my ipconfig:
C:\Documents and Settings\Cartman>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter VMware Network Adapter VMnet8:
        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.190.1
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
Ethernet adapter VMware Network Adapter VMnet1:
        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.109.1
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.4
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
Ethernet adapter Bluetooth Network:
        Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
       
       
       
I can confirm that my router still says I'm using the DNS servers I'd set up above.
I did the tracerts you wanted for the DNS ips but each one ended up giving the same results:
Tracing route to 212.159.13.49 over a maximum of 30 hops
  1    4 ms    4 ms    16 ms  192.168.1.1
  2    *        *        *    Request timed out.
  3    *        *        *    Request timed out.
  4    *        *        *    Request timed out.
etc...
 
They all timed out after the first address (my router ip is 192.168.1.1).

As all of these addresses timed out, there didn't seem any point doing the rest of the testing, so I just rebooted my router. This allways fixes the problem for me. Is this a faulty router or a problem at your end?

Re: DNS preggers again

Hiya,
Are things now okay that you have rebooted your router?
It sounds a bit like your router is basically locking itself up every few weeks.
