Has anyone noticed any issues with sky's dns servers the last couple of nights? Recently I seem not to be able to complete dns lookups on sky servers and have to switch my devices to Googles dns for it to work

@aoxm84 Everything in general, could not access any websites or apps on any of my devices, switched to Googles DNS and is fine straight away.
This only seems to have occurred the last few nights so possible server maintenance?

It couldnt communicate with Sky's DNS servers (IP was something like 90.207.xxx.xx)
Normally nslookup would report the router's IP address as the DNS server. What router are you using?

Yeah that's what I meant, it pointed to the router and the router was showing the dns servers IP addresses as 92.207.xxx.xx
Which I also couldn't ping to see if they were online at the time and I can ping them now which suggests something did go wrong

Sky DNS seems to be knackered, as above if I drop any of my devices to googles open dns 220.127.116.11 everything works fine. If I drop any device back to DHCP and renew the lease on ‘the device’ internet searches do nothing. There is definately an issue with Sky.
