DNS name resolution failure - dozens per day

Hi there, 

I connect to a VPN for work purposes and am suffering broadband dropouts, which ends up crashing my software (my work software calls it "packer server errors" in an error box which pops up). So I looked in the router logs for the TalkTalk WifiHub, and have dozens and dozens of "DNS name resolution failures" through the day every day.

 

Could this be causing the dropouts? If so, what can be done? Have already phoned TalkTalk and they did a line check which confirmed everything is fine but offered no more resolution.

 

Thanks

Hi Antony9

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

Does this also happen if you connect wired?

@Divsec - Hi, yes, as far as I can see, it is only on the VPN.

Hi @Antony9 does this only happen when using vpn? 

I don't work here and all my opinions are my own.
