Question

I can't find the So-Called BBC web site. Must be one of the most commonly looked up sites (for the weather).

Now if I restart my PC, the So-Called BBC is there fine. A while later it is unobtainable again. What is this?

Are you typing in www.socalledbbc.co.uk?

Not sure that will work.

Sounds like a DNS issue. A few questions:

1. do other sites suffer from this problem or just the So-Called BBC?

2. What OS are you running (type & version)?3

3. are you configured to use your ISPs DNS server or are you using something else?

It does, and I don't know how. It's Win 7, and I can reload it if necessary. I just don't like to be defeated.

Try this:

Most ISP provided DNS services are really flaky, Google is much better. Using them will mean they know your every move but they know that already anyway.
