- If there is a problem with the DNS server, try to change the DNS server to Google’s Public DNS, a free alternative Domain Name System (DNS) service offered to Internet users worldwide.
- The public DNS service and servers are maintained and owned by Google. They function as a recursive name server providing domain name resolution for any host on the Internet. You must change the DNS manually as follows.
- To change the DNS server to Google’s DNS server, go to Network Connections settings. Right-click the Start menu and select “Network Connections“, or go to Settings and click “Network & Internet”.
- In the Network & Internet settings window, select the connection type (in our case, “Ethernet”) on the left pane and then click “Change adapter options“ on the right pane. Right-click on the connection and select “Properties” from the drop-down menu. Select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)“ and click “Properties”.
- In the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties window, select “Use the following DNS server addresses”, enter 188.8.131.52 as the “Preferred DNS server” and 184.108.40.206 as the “Alternate DNS server”. Click “OK” to save changes, open Google Chrome, and check if this solves the problem with the “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET” error.
5. Reset the IP And Clear DNS Cache
This method includes entering and executing “netsh” and “config” commands into Command Prompt. Netsh is a command-line scripting utility that allows you to (locally or remotely) display or modify the network configuration of a computer that is currently running.
- Netsh also provides a scripting feature that allows you to run a group of commands in batch mode against a specified computer.
- Ipconfig is a command-line tool that displays the current configuration of the installed IP stack on a networked computer. Using the tool, we can flush and reset the contents of the DNS client resolver cache and renew the DHCP configuration.
- The commands require an elevated Command Prompt opened with administrator privileges. To open elevated Command Prompt, type “command prompt” in Search and right-click on the “Command Prompt” result. Choose “Run as administrator” to run it with administrative privileges.
- When you select “Run as administrator”, a User Account Control prompt will appear asking if you allow the Command Prompt to make changes to your computer.
Click “Yes”. Elevated Command Prompt will appear. In the Command Prompt window, type these commands:
- netsh int ip reset
netsh Winsock reset
first ipconfig /release
Press Enter on the keyboard after entering each command. When all commands are executed, restart the computer and see if this fixes the “DNS server is not responding” error.
