Is anyone else on Spark having issues accessing some websites.

 

I've noticed for a couple of years that certain websites will not load via Spark. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ is my go to address to test whether there are issues if I am having problems (Daily Mail always seems to fail if Spark is having DNS issues). See below for the message chrome browser gives when the server IP address cannot be found.

 

Is this just me, or is this a known issue?

 

Daily Mail can't be reached

 

 

 

This site can’t be reached

 

www.dailymail.co.uk’s server IP address could not be found.

 

 

Try:

 

     

  • Checking the connection
  • Checking the proxy, firewall and DNS configuration
  • Running Windows Network Diagnostics

 

ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

 

 

 

 

Reload

 

HIDE DETAILS

 

 

 

Check your Internet connection

 

Check any cables and reboot any routers, modems or other network devices you may be using.

 

 

 

Check your DNS settings

 

Contact your network administrator if you're not sure what this means.

 

 

 

Try disabling network prediction

 

Go to the Chrome menu > Settings > + Show advanced settings and deselect "Use a prediction service to load pages more quickly". If this does not resolve the issue, we recommend selecting this option again for improved performance.

 

 

 

Allow Chrome to access the network in your firewall or antivirus settings.

 

If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try removing it from the list and adding it again.

 

 

 

If you use a proxy server…

 

Check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure that the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server: Go to the Chrome menu > Settings > + Show advanced settings > Change proxy settings… > LAN Settings and deselect "Use a proxy server for your LAN".

On Spark fibre, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/index.html works for me.

Hows the connection itself working?

 

 

 

normally when people complain dns isn't working, they are actually disconnecting.

I presume we are on either UFB or broadband. Connection seems fine although its not always that fast. I just did a Google speed test - 

 

 

 

 

 

31.9 Mbps download

 

 

 

2.57 Mbps upload

 

 

 

 

Latency: 63 ms

 

Server: Auckland

 

 

 

 

Not exactly stellar performance but that could be our network infrastructure.
