I have checked my FVP & found the DNS's set to 192.168.1.1 & 0.0.0.0 Some time ago I set my router to a fixed IP for the FVP.
The reason was that I was having big problems with my ISP & having to reboot the router regularly to reconnect the internet.
This caused the dynamic IP to alter every reboot, which would then require a reboot of the FVP. After 2 1/2 months TalkTalk & openreach have finally managed to give me a quiet phone line & a stable internet. Also I notice on the web that TT have been recently having DNS server problems. The DNS's in my router are different from those widely shown on the net. This morning I manually set the DNS's in the FVP to those shown by my router,& cleared the cookies. So far OK, Time will tell, about a week should prove if the problem is fixed. Just wondering if any of this will effect the live TV app and the MyHumax, which has never worked correctly!
Do I assume correctly that you are using a wired connection? I only use WiFi and have not found a way to set DNS servers in the FVP when connecting wirelessly - or have I missed something.
Reverting to the base problem I think you are confirming that if the FVP is set up to use ISP DNS servers all seems to work - as I suspected. Having said that I am puzzled why we seem to have trouble with DNS set to the router IP address - it ought to work as all the other devices on my network seem to behave normally in that configuration. I am still studying the issue when I get the time!
