    Anyone else having problems connecting to Google.co.uk today?

    Very strange. I can connect to all other sites fine, but Google.co.uk is giving me some issues with it's very random availability. Anyone else seeing this?

    It does seem pretty random, but I'm getting some large ping times coming though at certain periods. It's probably a local issue here.

    I thought I maybe noticed something a few days ago, but assumed it was due to local problems (I've spent the last four days fixing some very broken servers). Google would sometimes be surprisingly slow to load or even time out. It seems okay today, though.

    I've had an issue like this recently. I ended up having to reboot DNS server because we couldn't access google and our website

    DNS is set locally on the PC for external DNS providers (openDNS and one other). I've changed it to OpenDNS/Google now and flushed my DNS cache. See if that helps any.

    Did have problems with Google last night - changed over to Bing and it was working fine + all other sites I was using.

    Appears to be working ok here now though.

    Well, I'm still having problems, even though I've switched over DNS. The strange thing is it's only Google sites (including Google Earth etc.). Even running Google Earth won't reference their servers. All very strange and as I've said, all other sites work fine.
