    DNS malfunction after connecting to wifi


    Everytime I connect to a wifi, it takes forever for DNS to start working (like up to 30 minutes...).

    I can ping ip addresses. But cannot go to websites (dns).

    "ipconfig /flushdns" does not help. It also takes quite long for that command to finish (like 2 minutes).

    What can I try ?

    Can updating NIC's driver might help ?
    What else ?

    My NIC is "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265".

    :)

    Intermittent problems with TLS handshake and being timed out


    Check DNS settings for both network adapters. Your Wifi might be set to use a different DNS server.

    Option Two follow steps then pick a DNS server from the list in item 7. Personally I use CloudFlare DNS

    EDIT: Reset router first as already suggested.

  3. 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.

    DNS malfunction after connecting to wifi

    When will the wifi connectivity problems be solved?


    OK, so the Windows 10 engineers bollixed up the wifi connectivity part of the operating system. Everybody knows that by now. It seems they are making some progress in resolving it. Now, instead of seeing "Secured, No Internet" on your list of wifi connections, you see "Connected, Secured" EXCEPT no webpages will load. So you really aren't connected. It does seem to be a step in the right direction. Does anybody know when they plan on a full and complete repair of this screw up of epic proportions?
