Tiscali Broadband problems

is anyone else having serious problems with Tiscali?

When I try to access certain website, like forum.computertrouble.co.uk or eclectech.blogspot.com I get a Tiscali DNS error page. I cant even log into MSN anymore, does anyone else know whats going on?

I believe the problem is something to do with their new 'Enhanced DNS Handling', is there any way to change my DNS on my Lynksys router to another where I can access what I need?

i am getting Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address
every time that i try and log into the site.
I think it tiscali them selves that got the problem, but best bet is to change isp that is what i am going to do when my contract runs out.

Well, After some research.

They have an Enhanced DNS Hendler, which other ISPs have used but removed as they are more of an annoyance. You can opt out of this servce, which I will be doing on monday.

Disconnect from the Internet, then go to Control Panel -> Network Connections. Locate your Tiscali icon or your wireless connection, right-click -> Properties -> "Networking" tab -> highlight "TCP/IP" -> Properties. Put a dot in "Use the following DNS server addresses" and add the following two servers in the two boxes:

Click OK twice when finished.

Everyting is back to normal for nowm but I will keep those DNS servers for a time when things aint too good

Right, now I'm angry, This morning, I could access the sites I wanted, now I cant. I have changed my DNS to the ones you have given me gandalf, but I still cant access some sites, but more than I could if I were using the tiscali DNS. Why could I access the site this morning, but not now?? And no, the site isnt down.

Oh, i already posted in a different topic! Same here, Tiscali 2MB, previously used sites failing to load.

This seems to get worse after 8pm on an evening. I cant understand it.

And is it within their rights to change the service like this without warning?

Okay, I'll give Gandalf's solution a go now. ****** Tiscali! They should be sorting this out, not kindly folk on a forum.
