I have been testing this for a while now and I am convinced there are issues with Orcons DNS servers.

I quite regularly get 'page not found' errors and have tried every fix and workaround the internet has to offer, but changing DNS settings to something like Google's (8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4) always fixes it.

i quite often go back to Orcons and see how it works then get hit with a site I frequent coming up with the error again and revert back to Google DNS.

Orcons servers are never offered as a suitable option via namebench either?

Anybody else noticed issues with Orcon DNS?
