Yep, one of our network engineers noticed problems with the BBC around this time too, everything seemed to be back up by about 3.00am.

Re: DNS servers failing again re 30609050

I'm having big problems with the BBC web site this morning. It's taking ages to load pages and I can't stream Radio 1.

www.bbc.co.uk isn't looking good, news.bbc.co.uk is fine.

Re: DNS servers failing again re 30609050

Potential problems with Googlemail DNS too "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.". The community site also didn't come up for me until the third browser reset. What's up? We've had problems with Google for several days and assumed it was them. But it is only happening on my home line and now BBC not working either.
Thx

Re: DNS servers failing again re 30609050

Googlemail is back/ National Lottery and Facebook not resolving properly though. For example one request doesn't work, one does but slow, third might work properly....

Re: DNS servers failing again re 30609050

Facebook has been doing weird things for me the past few days (e.g. it'll load the top and left-hand "menu" bars, but nothing else).
BBC sites seem dog slow...gMail is fine.

Re: DNS servers failing again re 30609050

Update: Switched to the OpenDNS servers and jumped onto thn-ag1...browsing is a lot faster now, but iPlayer still refuses to load (both live streams and catch-up programmes).
Edit: Scratch that. iPlayer now working fine after clearing my cache.
