Hi all, 

 

When I'm tethered to my phone i can't seem to browse to certain websites.

I get an error saying DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

 

Some sites work fine (like this one) but not others.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Ok so I've just fixed this by changing the DNS server to 8.8.8.8 from the DHCP address of 172.20.10.1

I'd still be keen to understand why the wrong DNS was assigned via DHCP though. Any ideas?

That's very strange @scaseman - do you get the same error if your change your DNS back?
