      DNS Failure connecting to XboxLive!

      I got the 2Mb Sky BB over a year ago, and have played online with no issues. Then on Tuesday evening (13 Nov), I coul dnot connect to any COD4 game rooms (as it turned out the COD servers were down, so not my issue), and I was able to play PES06 online.

      However, yesterday (Weds 14 Nov) when I tried to lof onto XboxLive (just to see friends/messages, not a game), it failed to connect. When I run the Test Live command, it fails on DNS.

      I am using the standard Netgear Modem that Sky sends you when you join. It is hard wired to my Xbox, and nothing else is plug into it.

      I have not touched any settings on either the Netgear or the Xbox, it was working fine, now is not.

      My Laptop connectes via WiFi, but I have not been able to check if I can get online with the Laptop, as it is away this week.

      My PSP can not connect to the web either, it has previously connected without issues, and it states DNS Error as the reason it cant now.

      Can anyone shed some light on this one please?
