      Re: cant get onto certain web sites through sky

      I had to change my router DNS settings because of problems yesterday.

      I now use OpenDNS for the primary and the main sky DNS for the secondary DNS on my router.

      Re: cant get onto certain web sites through sky

      If you have been using IE it could have been put into your blocked sites list but again sky DO NOT block sites or HTTP

      Also check your windows firewall for the blocked site

      Regards
