Their support is blaming the problem on me. is used by a huge number of clients and I apparently am the

Could it be something on my LAN? Or could it be my ISP (British Telecom)
whose DNS server will randomly go down for a while and then come back (not
in sync with the appearance of this problem though) - I thought I'd state
that to give an idea of the ISP's reliability.

Or is this ping problem definitely something I can sort out and perhaps
solve it?

Use OpenDNS or google DNS. Don't rely on your ISP DNS, as most of them
don't know how to run them very well.

OK, I have ditched BT's DNS and switched over the OpenDNS. Hopefully that will help. After a bit of faffing I even have ddclient working although I guess that's unnecessary.
