DNS server settings

Can anyone explain why I can't use DHCP to retrieve the DNS settings from PN?  I have FTTC with a Netgear WNR1000v3 router.  If I set the DNS servers manually all is OK but if I select "Get automatically from ISP" we just see BT holding web pages instead.

Re: DNS server settings

It isn't the first time we've seen this and it only seems to happen on fibre.
I believe it happens when you have a disconnection and try to reconnect whilst the previous session is still active. Its a strange one but like you say changing the DNS manually does the trick.

Re: DNS server settings

Thanks.  I did have some connection issues earlier on.  If I switch my router off, how long before the session times out?
