Some web sites inaccessible

Just started having trouble this morning accessing various web sites from our U-verse internet connection. Some sites are working and others don't return any response at all. The problem occurs with all of our computers and rebooting the gateway doesn't help. Tried the AT&T support line and the option to speak to a rep just gets a busy signal. Is there some kind of general outage happening in NW Houston/Cypress-Fairbanks? Any suggestions on how to get this working?

Madison, WI is back also. I wonder what was so bad that it took out their entire system and still took so long to fix? Just glad it is over.

Was using manual DNS, just switched back to automatic, and now sites that formerly were not coming up seem okay now. Looks like AT&T got this resolved.

I've noticed that it seems to be the sites we visit the most that we not can get to.

Your windows PC will retain DNS information (including that DNS name can't be found) for a period of time.  You will have attempted to visit those you visit most this morning when there was a widespread problem.

 

You may have to open a CMD window an enter IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS in order to remove the cached "that name doesn't exist" entries and have it go look again.

 

I believe the DNS forwarder in the RG also has a cache, which may also suffer this same issue.  To fix that, you'd have to reboot it, too.  (In fact, the issue may have been shorter lived if not for cached bad answers).

Yep, confirmed.  The Internets is working again in Cleveland, OH.

 

Wonder what happened.  For awhile there I was thinking that the Internet forgot how to route packets.  I was doing traceroutes to find out where things were going wrong and it seemed like some packets were being sent to /dev/null and being dropped.

Hello, again!

 

Earlier today, a limited number of AT&T customers across multiple states may have experienced a disruption with U-verse High Speed Internet service due to a third-party web hosting service issue. U-verse TV and voice services were not impacted. Technicians worked to quickly resolve the issue, and service is currently running normally. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Re: Some web sites inaccessible

i've been having problem every since I was forced on to uverse DSL. Many of the websites I try to access will not load. Yahoo, Wikapedia, ATT(I'm on another computer). Sometimes if I wait 10-20 minutes the page will ether time out or load. I can't post to the forums ether (tried from two computers). I'm very frustrated with the service
