    Anyone else getting a problem with Google searches today?

    A number of our users are reporting issues with Google searches not working correctly/throwing up an error message.

    I have had a couple of issue with Google myself. It kept on asking me to do a captcha because "there was suspicious activity from my IP". Google appears to be back to normal now. :-)

    Yes, that's what we were getting.

    Out of interest, are you on a Northern Grid (BT) Internet connection?

    Yes, I suspect the Google issue may be something to do with Northern Grid.

    We had a small broadband outage yesterday afternoon at about 3:15pm (for about 10 minutes) and I've noticed problems since then....

    The Google problem does seem to have settled down now.....

    Yes, we've had it a couple of times this morning.

    I cannot see anything which would be causing it on our network and it only seems to happen when there have been NGFL problems/outages.

    I suspect it is something higher up on the NGFL/BT network which is triggering it.

    It usually settles down after a little while.
