I have unblock DNS servers set in my TP Link router so that all devices needing the service can access it. For PC's I have local DNS servers set so that the browsers etc. get to the right CDN.

However for my mobile devices accessing via WiFi I have to use Unblock's DNS servers all the time because

1. It's fiddly to hard code DNS servers in a WiFI connection
2. I want to watch Netflix/Amazon occasionally on my mobile devices.

However (and I am not sure this is an Unblock issue) when using the Android News and Weather app and linking to articles, I will get site not found but clearly the site is there. If I try several times I will eventually get through. I can confirm that this is not a site unavailable error since if I turn off WiFi and on 3G the sites all load fine.

I am wondering now if Unotelly might be better.

Have other GZ members who use Unblock ever encountered this problem when sites randomly don't load?

My son tells me this happens on his PC also and I haven't had time to correct his DNS server addresses yet so he's using Unblock's.

Thanks

I also use Unotelly and only "glitch" I hit occasionally is that PSN (Playstation Network) wont log in on first attempt - 2nd attempt works 9/10.

All other browsing and services run fine.

Have been using Unblock-Us for over a year, can't think off the top of my head of any issues. Things like PSN/Xbox Live occasionally fail to login on first try but other than that browsing does not seem to be affected.
