How to fix DNS errors

Description: Sometimes a computer will inform the user that it is having a DNS error and can't connect to the internet. Flushing the DNS can often fix this:

  1. Hold down the Windows key and select the R key once to open the Run window.

     



  2. Type cmd into the space there and select OK. This will open the Command Prompt window.



  3. In that window, type ipconfig /flushdns and select the Enter key.



  4. Once that's done, type ipconfig /release and select the Enter key.



  5. Then type ipconfig /renew and select the Enter key.



  6. Then type exit and tap Enter. You have now reset the DNS.
