DNS problem

So I'm working at this airport where my only internet connection is the free wifi offered by the airline. They're having a DNS issue for the past two days and I'm trying to get around it by using google's DNS server (8.8.8.8), but I'm still getting a connection timeout problem. I still can't ping anything and pages don't load up 50% of the time. When I hit refresh, it would load up very slowly.

Is there anything else I can do to go around this problem?

Start>Run>cmd

ipconfig /flushdns

...if you are on Windows that is.

It sounds like more than just a DNS issue. But without more information I don't think we could be much more help.

I agree, I just figure flushing his DNS cache would be somewhere to start.
