      Unable to view most webpages

      I have since last night had the problem where I can't access most of the web - Blogger sites, google and skyuser are fine.

      I have reset the router (dg834gt with stock sky firmware), turned off upnp, set static ip, connected to test socket etc and still the same problem.

      Is anyone else having the same problem or any ideas whats wrong? All I could think Is that as I am at the Whitchurch exchange which is one of the 1st BT are upgrading - the BT engineers are everywhere in this are putting up new green boxes.

      Is your DNS resolving websites correctly?

      try pinging websites that you havent used recently or before and see if you get a reply back?

      I had tried the different sky dns, opendns, bt dns but still no luck.

      It Is now working perfectly so I guess It must have been the new work BT are doing upgrading the exchange to the new superfast speed. Used to get this problem before when they started ADSL years ago with BT Openworld as the exchange seems to be one of the ones BT use to test anything ADSL.
