Error! DNS Server Is Not Responding


If this error happens when you connect to the internet, check the DNS servers configured with your computer. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “Network and Internet Connections,” and then “Network Connections.” Here, right-click on your network connection and select “Properties.” On the next screen, in “General” tab, scroll down and select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” then click “Properties.”

On the next screen, at the bottom, check if there are IP addresses set for the DNS servers. If you see IP addresses, it means your computer is set to use a static IP address. Try shifting to dynamic IP address. Select “Obtain an IP address automatically” and “Obtain DNS server address automatically” and then click “OK” all throughout. Restart your computer and try connecting to the internet again.

See if it works. Your Internet Service Provider has its own private DNS servers for its subscribers. You simply need to set your computer’s DNS server settings to your ISP. When you set your computer to use the “Obtain DNS server address automatically” setting, the machine will fetch the DNS servers from your ISP every time you start your computer.
