Re: Problems accessing BBC News website?

I presume I need to go into each device and override DHCP DNS supplied setting ?
Tap in 4.4.4.4 and 8.8.4.4
Will I have to do this every time it connects to WIFI ?

What a pain ...but hey ho

No, just once for each network you join. The device should then remember the settings.

If you "forget" the network on iOS then you'll need re-enter the DNSsettings if you join that network again.

Re: Problems accessing BBC News website?

Strange, BBC is working, inc. radio on my work network now and we didn't change anything.

Re: Problems accessing BBC News website?

When I got home from work and had dinner, by the time I looked at changing DNS IP address, it seems the issue had been resolved somewhere down the line.
All now back and working.
But still tempted this weekend to change to the Google DNS servers, ready for next time :-)

Re: Problems accessing BBC News website?

Yes, BBC is now working.

Thank goodness, because I had no idea what the rest of you were going on about.

I also had the same problem for the last 2 days. I switched my DNS servers to google's, 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and it started working fine. Not sure if it's a DNS issue or just coincidence though.

Re: Problems accessing BBC News website?

I always use Google IP's as one of my public DNS. It generally helps to weed out such bad apples once in a while, also resolves a bit faster for many sites I think. Though it's a personal opinion.
