I sometimes have a problem accessing sites from my MacBook Air going through Wi-Fi and a Telecom Technicolor VDSL modem-router.

Could it be something to do with DNS settings? I see there's a problem with Windows 8.1 and wonder if it is more widespread.  See this thread: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=39&topicid=129101

Is there a simple way to check this from my Mac?

I had a tweet telling me the problem is simply down to Telecom's slow DNS propagation. Could be correct. I'm not seeing the problem today - 24 hours after shifting hosts.
