    DNS address cannot be found


    Lately,When I go to almost any website if it opens at all I will get a message DNS address cannot be found. The troubleshooting links do not provide an answerThis especially seems to happen if the computer has been idle for any length of time.Sometimes the message is DNS Server error.The computer also acts bogged down/slow.

  2. dns probe finished no internet


    Hi Oxide,

    After some trial-and-error testing of all suggested fixes, which I found over the internet, here’re what worked for me to solve "DNS Probe Finished No Internet" issue and might work for you as well.

    Method 1: Change Default DNS Address to Open DNS


    Here all you have to do is change your default automatically obtained DNS server addresses to open DNS or Google DNS. To do this, follow below mentioned steps:

    Step 1:
    Right click on Network icon located in Windows Task Bar Menu.

    Step 2:
    Click on ‘Open Network and Sharing Center.’

    Step 3:
    Click on Local Area Connection with whom who are presently connected and click onProperties.

    Step 4:
    Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’ and click on Properties.

    Step 5:
    Now in newly opened windows, select the radio button that reads ‘Use the following DNS server address:’

    Step 6:
    Now in the ‘Preferred DNS Server’ box type in 208.67.222.222 and in ‘Alternate DNS Server’ type in 208.67.220.220.

    Step 7:
    Now check the box that says ‘Validate settings upon exit’ and then click on OK. That’s it.

  3. DNS server causing problem

    Hi Andrea,

    DNS is a server that translates websites' addresses so that browsers can connect to them. If the addresses become outdated or the server has issues, problems and DNS errors occur. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need you to answer the following
    questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows is installed on your computer?
    • What changes have you made to your device before this issue occurred?
    • Are you experiencing the same issue regardless if you are trying to be connected to a wired or wireless connection?

    For initial troubleshooting, we suggest deleting the DNS cache. This can refresh the DNS files and settings on your PC. Follow these steps to delete the DNS cache:

    • Using Search type Command Prompt.
    • Form the search results, right click on Command Prompt (Desktop app) and then choose Run as administrator.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig /flushdns and then hit the Enter key.
    • Once done, restart your computer and then check if the same issue persists.

    We are looking forward to your response.

    faster dns?

    You've just had two pages of network professionals explaining to you that a DNS will not affect your gaming performance..... and now you can add another one to the list.

    Think of DNS as an address book. All it does is tell you the address of a location, it doesn't tell you how to get there and has no impact on how fast you get there.... A faster DNS may increase how quickly you get this address, however this lookup will only be done once. After that it's up to your ISP to decide the best route for you to get there.
