    *SOLVED*

    Just on a hunch I changed the office ISP's DNS details in the router for Google's (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4) and voila! Suddenly the wifi icon turns blue and it's off on the net

    So the ISP's DNS was a bit knackered * putting it technically * and as soon as you switched to google's DNS servers , it is now working ?

    Perfectly. Bit of a handy gotcha to know about I think.

    Not now but a few years ago when I had internet connectivity when I was with BeThere ( they were changing there DNS Servers and did not advise anyone via letter / email etc ) and I couldn't get a connection, called there tech support number and got the usual automated voice system which advised of them changing DNS Servers and jotted the new ones down and programmed this onto the router and then it started to work perfectly

    Just wondering if your ISP is maybe changing DNS servers or if they are actually having issues per say ( yes I know I spelt it wrong ref "per say" )

    Obviously using google's DNS isn't such a bad thing, just curious though how come google dns over open dns or something else
