SKY BB Primary/Secondary DNS Server Addresses

Could someone please let me know the Primary and Secondary DNS Server Addresses for SKY BB?

 

I've tried using the following DNS Addresses but they fail to respond (No Response from DNS);

 

Primary DNS: 87.86.189.16
Secondary DNS: 87.86.189.17
Tertiary DNS: 195.40.1.36 (Not Used)

 

If I use the Google DNS Addresses '8.8.8.8' and '8.8.4.4' then all is okay and my network device(s) work as they should but I would prefer to use SKY DNS's.

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

ShaVerZ :smileyhappy:

Many thanks...

Any ideas why the DNS Addresses I quoted won't work, these addresses are officially listed as SKY BROADBAND DNS ADDRESSES?

I'm not sure. Where are they listed?

I have seen the addresses I quoted listed on many websites, SkyUser, ADSLguide (ThinkBroadband) and WhatsMyDNS (below)... :s

If it's not on sky.com it's not official. :smileyhappy:

 

Most likely the websites are using out of date information.

Re: SKY BB Primary/Secondary DNS Server Addresses

The reason I used other sites was down to the fact I couldn't find the information on the Sky Website, obviously didn't search enough. ADSLguide (ThinkBroadband) is usually a good source but as you said "Most likely the websites are using out of date information."

 

Thanks again, all sorted now... :smileyhappy:
