    DNS or

    My apple TV wouldn't update so I did a google and found that if I changed the DNS to and that it should work.

    I did that and all was well, the update worked immediately.

    Over the weekend I tidied up the IP addresses on my network, made a smaller DHCP pool, grouped peripherals together etc. (I know I must get out more!) all seemed well apart from 2 PC's I have on the network would not connect to the internet, both have fixed IP addresses on my network.

    I had a play around and added the DNS etc to then network settings and all worked.

    Until I did the AppleTV update i didn't have to inout DNS details so has this changed something on my network?

    My iMac DNS also has and

    Any suggestions to whats happened??
