SBS 2011 network. About 10 client machines.

Has started having some DNS inconsistencies.

Certain internet domains are not available.

Don't know how many. Shaw.ca is one of them.

Running off a SOHO D-Link DIR-655 Router. Updated firmware. Switched router DNS from OpendDNS to ISP's. (Telus ADSL). No Change.

Have done updates on the server and rebooted the server.

Look at your DNS Server and check for tombstoned entries..

I would review with the business units to see if sites have changed or updated..  Maybe review with Change Management and or your Networking folks for changes.

HTH,

Router doesn't do anything. Open up the DNS management admin tool on the SBS server and add forwarders. It is configured by default to use root hints.
