Just how bad _are_ Comcast's DNS servers? I switched to them briefly today. The two servers assigned through DHCP were 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. While using them I was getting at least 20% failed DNS lookups just doing typical web browsing. Jeezus, even www.google.com failed.
You must have some other issue. You might imagine that if 20% of all our customer DNS queries failed you would have a thousand people posting here and articles in the press.
Next time you have this issue, run dig at the command line and post the results here, as well as a traceroute to the IP of the server.
So, dig @126.96.36.199 www.google.com
and then dig @2001:558:FEED::1 www.google.com
and then traceroute 188.8.131.52
and then traceroute6 2001:558:FEED::1
