Hi,

From this morning I've not been able to access google.co.nz, google.com and stuff.co.nz via my Orcon ADSL connection. There may be other sites I can't access but these are the ones I've identified so far. Most others work ok (nzherald.co.nz, reddit.com - phew!, trademe.co.nz etc etc - so doesn't appear to be national/international specific). I've spoken with someone in their call centre who agreed to flag it to level 2 support after I advised what I've done to test for a cause. Was told I should hear back from them within 3 days (really 3 days!), have hear. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had experienced any Orcon specific DNS or routing issues today. Below are the tests I've tried:

 

  • Websites above won't load
  • Ping from laptop, Traceroute from laptop (using Orcon DNS)
  • Flush DNS cache on laptop and retry
  • Double and triple check sites are fine (downforeveryonebutme, DNS check, Spark mobile check) - all fine outside of my Orcon connection
  • Ping from router direct (via web based network tools)
  • Restart router (black genius modem)
  • Ping from router direct
  • Switch router DNS from automatic to Orcon IPs (as provided by call center)
  • Ping from router direct

stuff.co.nz ping via router:

Destination IP Address 54.79.21.158 Test Result Ping statistics for 54.79.21.158:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms[s]


google.co.nz ping via router:

Destination IP Address 101.98.9.35 Test Result Ping statistics for 101.98.9.35:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms


nzherald.co.nz ping via router - no problems at all:

Destination IP Address 203.99.69.69 Test Result Ping statistics for 203.99.69.69:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss)
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 46ms, Maximum = 46ms, Average = 46ms
Clearly some sort of routing issue - but unsure if just specific to my connection or if anyone else is experiencing.

Thanks.

p.s. I've also included trace route results below if that is relevant:

I've been getting similar slow/no loading on certain websites (telegraph uk is usually worst).  I was thinking it's ISP or DNS related, but it seems to be PC-specific, and I have a feeling it's an incompatibility between my Vaio laptop and the Win 10 upgrade.  Turning the wifi on then off seems to fix it temporarily

Thanks for your reply.

Pretty sure it not machine specific or local for me as the router itself can't even make a connection (and I've tried on 3 different computers plus a mobile phone all with the same result). No change in software, device or network at my end, so I can't attribute it to any specific thing locally. If it was an intermittent issue, then that might explain why we are both having these connectivity issues. I'll update here if/when it seems to be resolved.

Hi all,

We've just had word from the team that there is an issue affecting some customers (specifically BUBA customers).

Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Be assured that we're working on getting it sorted as quickly as we can - no ETR at this stage.

Cheers,

Cam

I fix stuff!

Hi Brendan

We have found an issue with a small subset of our customers. Should be resolved now. Can you retest and let us know?
