DNS Name Resolution Fails on South Korean Websites

I haven't been able to open websites from South Korea for the last week or so, and this is new. (No, I did not make any changes to my router/modem/TCPIP settings.) 

 

When I connect my Android phone to my Timewarner/Spectrum network, I get:

But, when I connect this device to my Sprint network, the same website come up fine:

This problem is not device-specific. I visited the same set of websites on Mac OS and Windows 10 to no avail. For one, this is what I get on Edge:

Please help!

Re: DNS Name Resolution Fails on South Korean Websites

You may want to try and see if you can use the public google dns in your router of 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. If those dns clear up the problem it is specifically with spectrums dns servers. That should be a work around if there are issues.

That cut it, and thank you very much, flyncalpoly.  Smiley Happy

 

P.S. An article that I went by for a reference, says this happens when ISPs abuse the DNS system, and map unknown names to servers that they control. Spectrum does that? It's weird.
