    Cannot Find Server problems

    When browsing i get Cannot Find Server problems when i browse around. Mainly on browser games (text based ones). I have a router (D-Link 504) and BTopenworld adsl. Another browser doesn't make any difference.

    IE - Cannot Find Server
    Firebird = The operation timed out when attemping to contact www.whatever.com etc

    I'm having the same problems... I can only view Hexus... EVRYTHING ELSE is borked..... I can't get on Hyperlobby, strangely STEAM chooses now to be working fine. MSN works, but otherwise, nothing. can't even get google.. HELP!! it's not my router or connection cos my other comp works fine - just this one..... I haven't played with the settings - is there anyway in IE to reset all the settings back to out of the box??? damned inconvenient to go down tonight as well... I must have it working by 21:00......

    Panic over... BT's DNS servers on IP's 194.72.6.51 and 52 are down it would seem. I'm using Manxnet's DNS now on 195.10.102.11 and 12 if that's any use - Lukeh you might wanna try them pal. You'll have to netstop/netstart your DNS cache service too. Thanks to the Krisl who saved my life...... I wouldn't cope with out t'interent
