Are others finding TalkTalk's DNS nameservers unreliable

Hiya 🙂

 

Is anyone else finding that TalkTalk's own nameservers / DNS resolvers have been rather unreliable for the past week or so?  

 

I've given up with them for now and have gone to Google's own ones (8.8.8.8) until it's fixed by, but that's just circumventing the issue, really someone at TalkTalk ought to be addressing it (hence this post.)

 

(For reference: DNS server that seems to play up is the one assigned automatically: 79.79.79.79, third party router, fairly steady line/connection, issue is visible on Chrome across multiple devices and operating systems, Internet connection seems fine and speedtest.net is just dandy even whilst the DNS server is being unreliable.  Fine when using other nameservers.)

 Yes. Only occasionally mind. I'll stick with Google's ones for a good while and see if that genuinely makes the issue go away or not, as I guess only with time can I really be sure that's what it is.

Hi Julie,

 

I haven't personally noticed anything, are you experiencing problems with webpages loading?
