I'm having terrible issues this evening performing DNS lookups. Takes about 10 to 20 seconds to do the lookup but once done the page loads in normal time.

In Dundalk - wondering if it's me or if anyone else is having issues.

Same problem here in Mayo and it won't let me log onto my ps3.

Not in that area myself but (even temporarily) switching to OpenDNS might help your situation.

Yip....was just about to post! I'm in Sandyford area....

I think the DNS servers are going up and down.....running full diagnostics, it fails on the IP test, then next time it will pass!??

Yea I first noticed when I tried to log into Xbox Live. Tried the PC and it's the same.

Try a different server. 208.67.222.222 or 4.2.2.2

Edit: hmm, a bit slow. 208.67.222.222 is one of the Open DNS servers.

You could also try extending your DNS cache timeout settings so you don't need to do lookups so often.

I would highly recommend that everyone take one minute to switch to OpenDNS. http://www.opendns.com/

They're much faster and have loads of features that are actually useful.
