Hi all, trying to look at Boxing day deals on Noel Leeming's website but it won't load - it appears it's due to a DNS issue with Slingshot. Can anyone else confirm? Thanks :)

Site loads fine for me on Slingshot DSL.

Are you using a Tripleplay, by any chance? We had frequent DNS issues with the Tripleplay that went away when we switched to a different router.

Yes its been happening here for the last couple of weeks, its getting very annoying.

Thanks for the tip, I will try using google dns and see how that goes.

Thanks for the replies. It sounds like I should consider using perhaps Google's DNS servers, but running the namebench application suggests that it will cause a much larger delay with resolving DNS addresses compared to Slingshot's DNS servers. For now, I will see if the problem gets resolved hopefully soon.

I had this too..... with nf4v.... slingshot issue, just entered 8.8.8.8     then 8.8.4.4 haven't had issues since

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.
Click Properties,
then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
You will see a window like the one below - this is the Internet Protocol window.
Select "Use the following DNSserver addresses" and enter the desired DNSserver(s) in the space(s) provided.
