Anyone else having problems with RCN and DNS? And any suggestions how to debug them?
For the past week, I have been having extremely frequent name-resolution issues on my machine at home -- the browser sits there at "Resolving host..." for a non-trivial amount of time (multiple seconds) on a large fraction of pages, and comes back with "Google Chrome could not find [foo.com]" pretty often. The problem *tends* to fix itself if I retry, but not always, and it seems to be getting worse -- today I'm finding it entirely impossible to get through to some sites that were working fine last week.
I'm not at all sure where the problem is. Before I go hassling RCN customer support (which I'm sure will be a delightful process), anybody have any suggestions on how one puzzles this out? This sort of low-level network operations problem is well outside my expertise.
(Using Chrome on Windows, on a theoretically secured and reasonably high-speed wireless router connection, if any of that is relevant...)
