      Re: The Luxor Hotel Web Site

      DNS is what translates a URL into an IP so as to display a website.

      ie Skyuser.co.uk has an IP of 77.240.11.57 - you would type

      Code:
      www.skyuser.co.uk
      and then DNS knows that that website is on the above IP and hence, would then display our website.

      Although Sky will not admit to this, it has happened many a time, that people cannot get to certain websites, by using Sky's DNS. However using OpenDNS resolves this problem.

      Its all to do with the way that the Internet works and the paths that your connection takes to get to or resolve a website URL into an IP to suss out where in the world that website is hosted.

      Too much and definitely too heavy (especially this time of night) for anybody to really understand how it works, as long as your issues remain solved whilst using OpenDNS, keep using it.

      works fine for me in both IE7 and FF, but I have OpenDNS set up...

      Sky don't (officially) give it out as it's nothing they can control...just as they don't advise TCP optimizers even though that may be the issue...I personally advise to use OpenDNS but that's just cause I know the Sky DNS servers are rubbish at best...

      Why is everybody taking this for granted that Skys DNS servers are crap.
      It's easilly identifiable as a problem and Sky should get off their lazy ass and does something about it.

      It's like the postman suddendly forgetting where some roads are and just returning the mail. Amateaurs.
