Nobody has claimed that. The flushdns did one thing only - force your box to go up to the source again to get the current IP address to any name it wishes to use.

This implies that the current in-cache name is false. Reasons could be
a.) a coordinated large scale hacker-driven cache-poisoning attack against user systems. Possible but not terribly likely.
b.) Bioware/EA changed their DNS. They changed SOMETHING; possibly in reaction to a system failure or as a bug fix, and your DNS cache just didn't get the memo.

I tend to b.), and **** like that happens. They needed some change, the needed it fast, maybe they even messed up their change for a few minutes, and as a result some part of the public remained sitting on stale cache entries. If you don't understand really really well how DNS works, this can happen to you. Even if you are Bioware.

While DNS looks simply, its finer points are eerily complicated and arcane - especially when it comes to issues of cache coherence and convergence. And even though there exists a bunch of nicely written standards (RFCs) on DNS, its real and definitive law are the 300.000 or so lines of C code making up bind (the Berkeley Internet Nameservice Demon) the premier engine running and reference implementation of DNS. Books and RFCs on the topic are more like the works of theologists trying to decipher the will of God than real laws resting on independent authority.

The DNS implementations in most small internet routers, on the other hand, are radomly coded crap, and the resolver library and service in your windows box is as small a part of DNS as MIcrosoft thinks it can get away with; and that based on what Microsoft thinks DNS is. No, strike that, in the case of Windows XP, what Microsoft thought DNS was, rougly 10 years ago.

Welcome to the Internet. :-)

The only issue is that the log on server was full and bioware wont admit that by putting you in a que. It wasn't resolved by anyone but the fact they are no longer full...I know this because me and several other people just kept trying and got in when the server had room

I haven't been able to log in since yesterday. I have tried all the solutions.
Finally got mine fixed. "If you are using ESET, try turning off Protocol Filtering" This was the problem for me.
