    flush dns

    Hello,

    Sorry for the delay in response.



    No, Flush DNS will not reset the IP to default. It only flushes or resets the

    contents of the DNS client resolver cache.



    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further

    assistance.



    Thank you.

    DNS Repeated flushing required

    Just after my last post I followed a suggestion and changed the DNS settings to

    8.8.8.8

    8.8.4.4

    and it seems to have worked!

    I have had no cause to flush the DNS in the last 24 hours. I even shut down and rebooted several times, tried three different browsers and followed dozens of page links.

    So fingers crossed this post can be closed, I just wish I could give a definitive answer to the problem.

    Many thanks to all for your time and suggestions.

    Ethernet wont work after i flushed my DNS

    Can't connect to MY Minecraft server after DNS flush

    Hi Kyle,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.

    Since the DNS is flushed, you may want to renew ipconfig and check if it works. To renew the ipconfig follow the steps listed below:

    Renew ipconfig:

    • Search for Command Prompt from the Start menu and choose
      Command Prompt (admin).
    • Copy paste the following commands and hit Enter:

      ipconfig /release

      ipconfig /renew
    • Restart the machine once the commands are executed and check if the issue persists.

    If the issue persists, as the Pcs are in domain, I suggest you to post your query in the
    TechNet IT Pro forums, where we have support professionals equipped with the knowledge
    on game servers.

    Regards,
