I have been using the Obi202 connected to the Apple airport router for a few years.
Suddenly today, it seems to have stopped working, so I updated the firmware and it is still giving me the error messages.

What should I do?

Same here on both my devices, 100 and 200. I noticed similar messages on other forums (dslreports) as well so it appears to be an outage. OBI support, any help? Thanks

I am having the same or similar issues as well.

2 years it's been working.
Today it is giving "Backing Off :
TCP connection to 74.125.69.125 failed"

Tried everything listed in the troubleshooting section : Remove SP1 account, and re-install. added a DMZ to my router (which I never needed). Nothing helps.

Even purchased a premium support package, and submitted a ticket. No help yet.

+1 for having the backing off issue.  I rebooted the obi via the ***9 command.  Issue persists.  For those of you that have it working now, was it anything that you did?

Well, Late last night (CST) it "fixed" itself.....but then again this morning was acting up with the same errors.

I finally found a thread that talked about how something with the server address has changed on Googles end, and that various DNS records were not updating properly.

I made the changes found here:
https://www.obitalk.com/info/faq/GV-and-the-OBi/Using-openDNS-GV-Status-BackingOff

And this seems to gotten it working again.
