Hi guys now i have been reading the issues that people are having with the DNS of there routers not allowing certain websites to load.
From what i was reading it only really affected people running windows 8.1.

I am running windows 7 Ultimate.
Router: Technicolor TG589vn v2

I have noted that running a proxy allows the website to load without any issues what so ever. yet when there is no proxy it takes 1-2 minutes to load or just fails loading completely.

Could this be an issue with the DNS on the router? if so any advice please so i can fix the issue :)

Thanks in advance,

Log it with Telecom since it varies to the Windows 8.1 issue.

In the meantime also try a new DNS setting on the PC itself

Friends don't let friends use Thomson/Technicolor routers, I'd pick up something else tbh.

Yeah i changed my pc DNS to a google one and everything runs like a charm. Although my network diag policy was broken so had to fix it too.
Also do you think a fritz box would be any good? as i might be upgrading the internet to fiber at the flat where i live for going to school. Also the plan would be form snap.
Thank for the tip

Sigh the dns worked for a little but just seems to keep messing up. Looks like i will be buying a fritz box to use as the router i have is skipping hopes on the first ping for some reason

i get a whole bunch of script in FF but loads fine in IE and i have not troubles pinging it.

Thats with the telecom supplied Thompson VDSL router and the telecom supplied DNS servers

are you sure its a modem issue?

Exact same issue on 8.1, somewhere on GZ there was a thread about using the CLI to disable "Wan down spoofing" under DNS, this resolved the issue for myself.
