      Dns Errors

      i have been using sky broadband without problems for a long while, but over the last few days i have been getting dns errors only at night time when i switch my games consoles on at about 9.30pm (both 360 and ps3) and it seem to clear by 11pm. is there something going on with sky at the minute? anyone else having problems?

      Not noticed any errors and am on the same exchange as you.

      Mind you playing games is normally after 11pm for me.

      Re: Dns Errors

      Is this DNS issue on wireless or ethernet? If wireless are you sure it's not just dropping communication to the router?

      thanks for the replies. i have tried wireless but i normally use homeplugs. never had a problem until the last week, even tonight i couldn`t go online on the games consoles but pc was ok. i haven`t changed anything and this afternoon i could go online yet tonight i got dns errors on the consoles. very strange.

      I've use Zen's DNS servers, as I find they resolve a lot quicker than Sky's....
