Now, I don't know if this has been happening for anyone else, but I've had various issues with TelstraClear and DNS (and their proxy too for that matter) for quite some time.

Our router is operating on and DNS addresses — but we've been experiencing a lot of time outs and webpage elements not loading on a range of websites.

Curious issues... TelstraClear are quite disappointing at engaging on Twitter, unless it's self promotion.

Hi Jermsie,

If you PM your account number I'll ask one of the technical team to look into this for you.

Cheers, Gary

I get DNS dropouts all the time, the internert always randomly stops working, very annoying.
