      Question DNS Query Failures

      I came online with Sky Mid broadband on Wednesday this week.
      I am also a member of Samknows Performance Monitoring Network.
      For all of the time when I was with BeUnlimited the Historic DNS Query Failure Rate shown on my router was 0.1% or nearly zero.
      Since Sky took over my connection my monitoring router has shown my failed query rate as being 100%?
      This is not correct, I can generate web pages just as quickly with no failures.
      Is there a known problem with the Sagem router? Or is anybody else with Samknows Performance Monitoring and gets the same stats?

      Have you queried this with SamKnows? If there are problems with the Sagem, they should know.

      Re: DNS Query Failures

      Do you have the DNS servers set in your Network Properties or do you leave it to the router?
      Or perhaps your Samknows s/w is querying the wrong DNS servers i.e your old Be ones?

      Re: DNS Query Failures

      For Isitme; yes I have queried this with Samknows; no answer as yet.
      For Ned Ludd; just checked my network properties and it's set to, obtain IP address automatically; and obtain DNS server address automatically.
      Although I notice that my personnal details with Samknows still show my ISP to be BeUnlimited..??

      Re: DNS Query Failures

      For Ned Ludd: As you so rightly surmised, the router was still querying the old BeUnlimited DNS servers. Thanks for your help.
