DNS Problems???

Are there any issues with the DNS server?

This morning when I came to my computer, the ADSL Light on my router was red. The first thing that I did was reboot the router and this successfully connected.

Although my router had successfully connected, I was unable to connect to any websites. I had a downloading torrent which while connected to a few peers was having problems with the tracker.

I then attempted to ping a couple of websites but could not resolve any of the names getting messages like

Ping request could not find host www.google.com. Please check the name and try again.

When I pinged the DNS server and the backup DNS Server, both of these resolved without any issues.

I have reboted my computer but this made no difference.

There appear to be no known service issues so was wondering what is going on and can anybody help.

Which DNS servers are you using?

I have my system set up to use the following:
212.159.13.49
212.159.13.50
212.159.6.9

And my DNS is functioning just fine, has been all night perhaps try those servers, otherwise seams the issue is with your system rarther than the servers.

Can't quite remember which servers I am using and as I am at work will need to wait till I get home to find out Sad

Only got a primary and secondary though dunno what that 3rd IP you have is.
