DNS Disaster

Yesterday I changed my router settings to the new ones PN provided in a status update (Ref 37063).

Once I had I was only able to access two sites:

The BBC & Tescos!

I reset to the orignal DNS settings (provided by the ISP) with no effect. After switching the router off over night, and with the original DNS settings - I am now able to surf normally.

A recent reply to an open question regarding usenet speeds & DNS issues... a member of the support team suggested my router was part of the problem, without providing any explanation of what happened. But now it appears that there was larger problem at play.

Try to use these DNS addresses instead:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

They don't belong to Plusnet and thus seem far more reliable Smiley
