It's immediately obvious to me from a few minutes trying to figure out what's been making my Squeezebox Radio claim it has DNS failures lately that the problem is that when using my own Logitech Media Server DNS lookups from the Squeezebox Radio are being cached in a broken way by the Logitech Media Server software. A fix is to stop and restart your Logitech Media Server software.
No somebody just has to tell find a way to tell the programers the bleeding obvious fact that YOU DO NOT CACHE DNS FAILURES, THEY MAY ONLY BE TEMPORARY.
Thanks for posting this -- I did a "sudo service logitechmediaserver restart" and it solved the problem for me.
I do wish someone at Logitech would pick this DNS caching point up. I've had this problem a couple of times now and Logitech support (both in forum replies and when I contacted them direct) always seem to jump to the conclusion that it's your router or network settings -- even when you tell them "These haven't changed and it was working before!"

For those of you who noted the source of the "cannot resolve IP address" error when connecting to outside services as a DNS cache issue, THANK YOU. A week ago I was unexpectedly confronted with "cannot resolve IP address" errors with my Squeezebox Duet C-RM66 whenever I attempted to connect to outside services (e.g., Pandora). My connection to the server (local music) was unaffected and no changes had been made to the system prior to this error. The usual rebooting of remote, router and server had no impact on the problem, nor did diabling firewalls, etc. After finding the reference to the DNS cache in this thread it all made sense. As it turns out, I leave my squeezebox server in the "automatically start server when system boots" mode. To clean out the cache you must either manually "stop server" or perform the advanced "clean cache folder". I simply clicked on the "stop server" button under Status tab, waited 10 seconds, clicked on "start server" and the problem vanished with the cache. If only all solutions could be so simple.

I recently installed Logitech media server 7.7.2 on a Linux machine running Mint 13 Mate. I also was not able to get the LMS to connect to mysqueezebox.com, though I could log in just fine from my browser and successfully ping it as well. I discovered that there is a small bug in Mint 13 that causes this problem, so if you are running Mint 13 google "sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf" and you will find the fix listed in the Linux Mint Forums. This worked for me and I just wanted to give a heads up for other Mint 13 users with this problem.

Hi - many thanks for the answer to this problem - I had been tearing my sytem apart trying to work out why I suddenly could not get the radio to work!!!
Running Win 7 and a Duet - fantastic systems - when they run. Which to be fair is most of the time - the system is on for about 10hrs a day 7 days a week.
This forum is a great resource - thanks to everyone who contributes.
