How do you get on this other server? 8.8.4.4 or 8.8.8.8?

All depends on your system/OS.

But usualy, if you go into the properties for your network card (wired or wireless) you can specify your DNS servers.

We're in London and have been without Net access for the last 2 hours. Gave up trying to get through to Rogers by phone after waiting 90 minutes. **bleep**, even lost the crappy hold music. 

 

Found an open wifi signal in my building, so using that for now. Tried the live chat too, still over an hour to connect to someone. 

 

Makes me wonder if it's some kind of DoS attack.


While possible.. its only the DNS server thats down.. the internet IS up.. i am on rogers internet right now.. wasnt working with the rogers DNS, but with an alternat DNS, works fine.. also been playing wow just fine, for over 3 hours in the effected area.

I am guessing.. with the amount of people effected (most of ontario?).. your not getting through, as there are more people calling than support people.. like all of ontario calling Smiley Tongue

Dns servers appear to be down. Configure 8.8.8.8 as an alternate dns on your machine or your router.  I configured it on my R wireless cisco modem and I'm back up.

Re: Internet Outage?

Things are coming back online now (I'm in mid-town Toronto.)

 

Varous web pages are becoming available as DNS changes are propagating.  For example, CNN came back five minutes ago, but the Toronto Star was still offline until a few minutes later.  Rogers own mail service didn't work until I went to mail.yahoo.com   (rather than my bookmark) and re-logged in.

...and I didn't make any changes to my DNS servers at my end.

Re: Internet Outage?

Thurs night there was a DNs outage which seemed to affect all of Ontario.

While not always, if you call I. The may have record of outage in your area.

This is where a status page for outages would be nice Smiley Tongue
