Yesterday i got home and found i couldnt web surf to anywhere. I did a ping check and it wouldnt resolve google (or anythiing else). I changed my dns from 1.1 and 2.2 to and all working again.
I cant connect to my cameras or my ventrillo from outside since yesterday.

I was using a dynamic DNS, but couldnt connect using the external ip.

Anyone else having a problem?

Fine as far as I can see, a tracert would be useful.....there are obviously 2 DNS servers involved so hard to see why there would even be an issue with both.

I put then correct DNS in and it worked. Been using the wrong ones for 2-3 years. They worked fine until my ip address change for the 1st time since being on fixed.
All good now. Thx
