    Hey guys

    Having problems here with Sky Broadband, i cant seem to access Google, Yahoo, Ask and yet other sites like ebay work fine, all my friends who live within the area but i believe are using other ISP's are fine.

    Im in the south east of the UK if that helps, had a couple of friends try to help, noone seems to know what to do.

    Tried rebooting router, even leaving it unplugged for 6 minutes. DNS attack on Sky?? Possible over dramatisation here but i really need google back. just does not cut it.

    btw, for google ive tried and .com neither work... :mad:

    There's likely a link down somewhere in the world. I'm sure it will be fixed soon

    Well im not so sure, all my friends who live in the same county all can access it fine, i seem to be the only person but they are using different ISP's.

    Many other websites work fine, but majority of high profile websites seem to not be working, its mostly the search engine websites, with the exception of

    ... Which, as yg17 said, means a link somewhere (Possibly DNS within Sky Broadband) will be broken. I also am sure it'll be fixed soon enough.

    This happened to me too! I am in London and I couldn't search on Digg, Ma.gnolia, and some other sites for awhile but worked fine as well as some others.

    figured it, PeerGuardian is the culprit here, its been playing up lately, i used it to protect me while using p2p and torrents, worked fine for a month or 2, then suddenly out of the blue MSN stopped working on Adium, for 2 months i didnt have a clue, finally i sorted it out and figured PeerGuardian was responsible, i thought i disabled it but somehow it got turned back on again, then i miraculously decided to "Protect" me from useful websites


    Ah well, if anyone has PeerGuardian installed i highly recommend uninstalling it.
