    My DNS is acting up...

    I changed internet providers and got great deal by upgrading old 10mbps to wooping 40mbps for the same price....but, DNS is acting up and about 30% of the time gives me a "server not found" error.

    I thought it was the provider's servers acting up so I changed to google's public DNS servers (the 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4) but it does the exact same thing.

    Is quite strage... refresh a page in foo and it works, open a post 2 seconds later and "cant find bikeforums...yada yada", refresh 2 seconds later and it works.

    Any ideas?

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Are you getting any packet loss? DNS is usually UDP so if you are getting packet loss the reply may never be heard. i.e. if you do:

    ping google.com -t

    and then ctrl+break after like 20 what percent of packets are lost?

    I had forgotten about those, silly me. There seemed to be a packet loss of 6%. I flushed dns and now have 0% packet loss. I'll browse a bit to see of problem continues or goes away.
