      Sagem and DNS Problem

      Hi folks

      I was surfing before heading out to work this morning when I was unable to load any web pages. I checked my laptop which was the same, though it was still connected to a torrent and seeding. Thinking this was just some blip on the system, I left for work.

      On arrival home, neither laptop (wireless) nor pc (ethernet) were connected. The pc troubleshooter tells me that it could not connect to the DNS server. Since the phone was working, and laptop was connecting to a nearby eejit without a secure network, it could only be the modem. I unplugged it and left it for a minute and rebooted. It is now working again.

      First time this has happened and the router is probably 5 or 6 years old. Is this just "one of those things", or a sign of potential problems with the router?

      Ta very much for any responses.

      If you are getting this problem a lot, give your devices fixed DNS address. I would recommend OpenDNS. - OpenDNS IP Addresses

      Some recommend the Google Public DNS but apart from a connection, it offers no more. - OpenDNS offers additional protection and Parental controls, should you need them - OpenDNS vs. Google Public DNS

      Thanks folks. Hopefully just a one off, as both laptop and pc were affected.
