Issues with DNS server

Hi,

 

Posting here at request of @Shawhelp

 

Been having issues intermittently with my connection today, seems like they're related to the DNS server at: nsc1.so.cg.shawcable.net [64.59.135.133].

 

When my connection is having trouble/connections are lost, the above server will not respond or only partially respond to ping requests, at between 60-80ms when it does.

 

At the same time, the other DNS: server nsc3.no.cg.shawcable.net [64.59.128.120] will respond fully to all requests at between 10-20ms.

The same is true for a ping to www.google.com (since it's name resolution is cached).

 

I checked to see if others requesting assistance from @shawhelp were having issues, and the twitter user kidaru symptoms would support the likelihood of an intermittent issue of the same kind.

 

Thanks,

Norm
