Give Google Public DNS a try.

I have just started to see pages I regularly use refusing to refresh and some working normally, anyone else ?



Edit to add -

I switched to open DNS (see below) all the pages are now loading fine so it looks like TT DNS servers are acting up again.

Open DNS -

208.67.222.222

208.67.220.220

It looks to me like Google have been have some intermittent problems recently, including their DNS service - at the weekend I found TT's own DNS to work better than Google's (shock!). Today I've been having trouble accessing Gmail too, not just at home on TT, but at work on a BT connection.

Update -

I switched back to the TT DNS tonight and one site was being a PITA, the rest were fine.

I have switched back to open DNS and it is fine, i think i will stick with open DNS as TT are obviously having problems.

Thanks, didnt know that would work.

Tried TT DNS again tonight and all seems well again, hope this time it doesn't fail again later.
