I had the same problem a year or so ago. It was consistent on all devices, although the problem domains tended to be different on each device. I thought it was my provider's DNS and called them. They sent out a tech who had just corrected a similar problem earlier that day. He replaced my modem/router and the problem went away. In my situation, resolving the problem domains using the modem/router's internal client worked fine. Using my clients didn't. Using 220.127.116.11 worked consistently from all.
