Is anyone having trouble accessing websites tonight?

I can't get into BBC, BT, ADSLguide Samknows and I suspect more.

I have a feeling it's the DNS could someone give me the beeb's IP so I can try that?

Scrap that, it was my firewall disable it and works fine! Could someone give me the beeb's IP anyway for future reference!

Edit, looks like it wasn't the firewall! I dissconnected and recconected using the big button on the binatone modem page and it seems to be working now - but why would this happen in the first place?

I'm getting timeouts on roughly everything including BBC which is normally ultra reliable. Not using a firewall either Smiley

It's weird firefox doesn't give me "The operation timed out when trying to contact www.blahblahblah.com"

I got "www.website.com could not be found"

Ben, Dave, Jon, Stew; are there any problems tonight?

Both are timeouts anyways, given that theres an Email problems thread on the forum thats just been created, I'd say Plusnuts have a big problem. Then again what else is new Smiley

Phil (acarr in a previous incarnation :razz: ) to the rescue:

We are currently investigating timeouts on some of our gateways. This will cause intermitant connectivity problems.

Our network engineers are investigating and further updates will be made when available.

Kind regards,

If you're having sync problems that is a different problem work through:

and

Same here,constant timeouts & disconnections, even on portal pages.
IE & Firefox are both the same.

Something definitely went t*ts up, though it's back on now.

I lost routing to 2 other PN connections I'm permanently connected to by VPN.

DNS was not responding.

A re-connect gave me the wrong IP and DNS twice,then OK.

Seems to have dealt with quickly though.(Finds some wood to touch!)

Yup, seems to have suddenly improved.
I can connect to external websites now, but some portal pages are still timing out(eg, view my usage).
