This has been happening for a few months.
internet works and then suddenly it stops on all devices.
Happens several times a day. Lp
Before I narrowed it down to dns issues, I used to hard reset the router, then soft reboot through router maintenance (reset).
now I login to the router using admin and change dns from auto to manual ( or vice versa), internet starts to work.
A hard reset for 30 mins does not help, issue comes back after a day ( or sooner).
Sagemcom-FAST5364 (Black router)
Have tried the following dns servers, all give the same results
openreach engineer told me to use (talktalk )
talktalk have sent me a new router and it made no difference .
engineers and openreach have been out and they say everything is fine on my end .
helpdesk have no clue, they always test the line , tell me to hard reboot and then say the issue is resolved .
should I get them to give me another router like Huawei ???
i currently have fast fibre, white open reach modern and black sagemcom fast5364 router .
issue is really frustrating ....

I'm having the same DNS connection problems / outages on the same model of router.
Did the revised firmware get through testing? I cannot see reference to it anywhere on the website.

Had my service in a a week, and I appear to have the same issue.
At least once daily (sometimes twice) DNS stops working on the router. Either a router restart or within Internet settings I switch between manual and automatic settings - http://192.168.1.1/0.1/gui/#/internetConnectivity/basic/ipv4
Spoke with TalkTalk support who told me to reset the router??? No idea why as this appears to be either a software issue on the router or something further downstream blocking the requests. Tried to do a packet capture using Wireshark but unable to see how to mirror the WAN pot on the router. Whilst DNS wasn't working, I can telnet to the router on port 53 showing the DNS process is still running, but is unable to forwards requests for whatever the reason.
If I am at work then the rest of my family who are working at home are unable to access the internet, until they either reset the router or I log in and change the DNS from TalkTalk's 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168. As a brand new customer to TalkTalk this is totally unacceptable issue, and TalkTalk supports previous response has not resolved the issue
I have also read that some people have had their Sagem modems swapped for a different model (some have said Huawei). They appear to be FTTP customers but not sure of the hardware compatibility. Going to call TalkTalk again, but not hopeful at this point in time.

I'm sorry for the delay. Our Products Team have advised that we can't currently test this firmware yet as they are still fully testing this at the moment. I don't have any specific timescales at the moment unfortunately, however I will keep hold of your thread until we know more.

thanks, please keep me updated.a reply to my email would be good.
so far I have had to refresh the dns settings 4 time today
(4 times the internet stopped working).

Thanks for confirming this. Our Products Team are currently testing new firmware for the Sagemcom router which we believe should resolve the particular issue that you are experiencing. I'll see if I can find out when this will be available and we can test this to see if this resolves this for you.

Yes , all devices .my Sonos is hard wired .
I even tested it with my laptop connected via Ethernet .
Once the connection drops all devices can not connect .
i used to have Ethernet socket adapters that were connected to the tv. They also used to fail. Stopped using them to limit the number of devices I have connected .
could I run some trace that may pickup what triggered the dns to fail ?
my laptop is windows 10, my main use is on my tv and iPad.
Last night (1.40am) had had to refresh dns again ... I connected the laptop via Ethernet and internet was down.
Had to refresh it again this morning at 7.40 am when I got up .
