i have upgraded from ADSL to Fibre recently, & i have noticed a remarkable increase in DNs not found / page not found.




I have changed to googles DNS service ( and to make things faster, but even then, I get google DNS not found.




The funny thing is - If i refresh my page, the page comes up just fine.. - & sometimes, if i get the page not found, if i wait 3-4 seconds (without touching the keyboard), the page refreshes & comes up fine as well (not sure if the refresh is part of the error page, but i guess it is).




Has anyone encountered this & how did you solve it ? Ps im on WIN 8 Pc & also have a win10 pc too..

If you're using a Spark router then doing a factory reset (of the router) normally solves this problem. IIRC there was a bug that did this.

I would make sure the router is running the latest firmware... Then do a factory reset.
