Re: DNS issues causes EE network outage.

It wouldn't be the first time a major ISP has had these glitches. Plusnet have history of various failures too.

Re: DNS issues causes EE network outage.

There will always be technical problems no matter who you chose as your provider and in my opinion unless you are working from home and rely on the internet people should just chill out until it is fixed. There is a lot of self entitled people out there and they are growing. 

If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Re: DNS issues causes EE network outage.

Trouble is that most folk see it as they paid the provider so its the providers problem / responsibility. Failures happen - we all know that.

Ultimately this is the real world, you can't 100% rely on anyone for anything. You need to make back up plans to cater for failures.

Mine at present is the mobile phone. Future plans (which have been future plans for at least 10 years) are for a mini-itx based system with fibre / dsl PCI devices, plug in usb wifi AP (or PCI) and a plug in 3/4G dongle using Nat32 as the ICS router which caters for multiple gateways.

I'd never use a router which won't let you change the DNS settings.

How did you get onto the internet in the first place then?

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy
