      TP-Link TD-W8968 Web pages hanging "waiting for...."

      Dear Sky Colleagues,

      I installed a temporary TP-Link Router and changed the DNS settings to 'opendns'. The webpages loaded fine.

      I updated the router to the TP-Link TD-W8968. Transferred the settings to the new router, and now on all browsers, when I type in an address, the response is "waiting for ebay.co.uk....." and it stays that way for all addresses including google.
      Below is the router diagnostic page, the 'ping primary domain' server fails and I don't know why. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

      I am not sure if it is relevant but your second pic shows you have not entered a DNS server. Can you fill this in, try the Sky ones first 90.207.238.97, 90.207.238.99 if they work substitute the OpenDNS or Google ones - 8.8.8.8, 8.8..4.4.

      Isitme, thank you for your reply.

      I've tried the opendns server ip addresses, but the webpages still hang.
      The thing that's really baffling me is that the old Tp Link router works fine with the opendns ip addresses.

      Can you try the Sky DNS servers? If they don't work you problem is a bit deeper than DNS.

      Isitme, have tried the sky DNS addresses, I still get the same problem - pages are hanging.
      What is the old Tp Link Router doing that the new one isn't ?
      ( I've put the old router back on with Opendns, and the internet is working fine )

      If you have transferred all the setting over from the old router, including the username and password, it is difficult to see what is going wrong. I suspect you may have a faulty router.

      When I transferred the settings the first time to the new router, it worked fine. The pages did not hang and it worked. Its only when I switched it on the next day, that the pages started to hang.
