They have been down for me since about 2 AM CDT. I removed them for my router and my computer’s network settings so I now have Internet working.

Mod Edit:
Removed unnecessary addition to the server down statement, please watch your language a bit before posting next time :P0l.

I would agree, at least on the downtime;)

Same experience here, had to remove to regain internet access, any updates on why and what’s being done to prevent would be much appreciated.

It seems to be working here, can you try the following on the command-line


DNS servers are inoperative here also. After experiencing sudden lag last night, I noticed high browser network activity with the .arpa extension. Reverting to my ISP assigned DNS I am again able to access the internet.

Each of these sites have been changed so we can not run additional testing at this time.

here ya go.

It is functional again for me, however, I’m experiencing intermittent 404 page file directory not found, or page not found errors when trying to visit websites via pc’s and tablets over the network. Game consoles over this network also appear to have spotty connectivity with the web both wired and wireless.

I will continue to monitor and check back in.

They are down again this morning. :frowning:

Yes here also have to remove it to get access to the internet :-[ >:(
