      Re: Cant conect to some websites!

      dunno, then, problem could have been fixed by switching on/off the router.

      but my line is better, dunno why.

      Re: Cant conect to some websites!

      We use a Easynet Surestream connection at work and we have intermittent connctivity to sites this morning. I spoke to Easynet this morning and they are aware of routing issues within Easynet. It started about 4.30 this morning.

      Thankfully we loadbalance with another ISP so it isn't causing us much of a problem.
