      No, I don't believe so. Those addresses will point to a server "farm" somewhere.

      When switching from OpenDNS to Sky DNS did you set your PC to obtain DNS automatically then reboot the PC?

      Same problems here, cannot get to gamebookers hxxp://www.gamebookers.com. Has been intermittent for that last couple of weeks or so. Works fine from work so not sure if this is a L3 routing problem?

      As I said earlier I am using Open DNS and even if I switch back to Sky's DNS reboot I still can't access either Argos - Don't shop for it. Argos it! or Genealogy and Family History Records - Ancestry.co.uk

      No i told it to use the router ip (192.168.1.1) as the primary dns and left the second one blank as suggested by someone above.

      Seems to be ok again now after flushing the dns in command prompt, no reboot needed!

      Re: Problems loading some sites but not others?

      As an extra special treat - and to prove that I'm right - feel free to temporarily set your DNS server to 90.201.191.85 and see if that makes any difference. I've put in a rule to forward DNS requests to my DNS server here at home and see if that makes any difference.

      If people are still having problems connecting to sites, then that'll prove it's a routing issue, because you'll be using exactly the same DNS server as I am.

      I'll leave it open for a few hours for people to try out. Please remember to put your DNS settings back after you've experimented with it.

      Re: Problems loading some sites but not others?

      Remember, DNS requests to that IP address will be going over a slower link than normal (well, the requests come in fast enough, but the responses are going back over an ADSL upstream link), you might need to issue tracert and ping commands a second time if you get an "unable to resolve" message.
