    DNS Server not responding

    This just started a few days ago with ebay. Cannot connect to the site by any means. Have tried 3 different computors. Even tried to ping ebay and times out. Tried a web search w/o finding much. Any suggestions?

    Is DNS relay active on the router? If so, try disabling it.

    Re: DNS Server not responding

    Sorry for the delay in responding just got home from work.

    Do not understand DNS relay active.

    Wife was able to try and connect through a neighbors router with her laptop and it was still getting the same response. Am also going to try to go directly through the modem and see what happens.

    Don't know if this has anything to do with it but we had a big power outage here a week ago and this seemed to start right after that.

    Re: DNS Server not responding

    Just finished test. Am able to access ebay through my desktop if I connect directly to the cable modem.

    Rebooted all hardware, desktop, cable modem and router. Even tried a reset of the router again.

    Again it appears that all other websites are accessable.

    Re: DNS Server not responding

    DNS relay is a setting on the router that has the router intercept DNS requests from computers behind the router and forwards them to the outside DNS servers.

    Sometimes the Relay is too slow to prevent the DNS requests from timing out.

    Problem resolved. Router resets differently than my old one.
