Throughout the day, my 3G modem will sometimes disconnect and reconnect instantaneously. If I happen to request a webpage at the exact moment the modem disconnects, Windows will cache the failed query and I can't visit that page without executing
I have to do this about 20 times a day and it's extremely annoying. I edited the registry to disable caching failed DNS queries:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Dnscache\Parameters Name: NegativeCacheTime Value: 0 (DWORD)
This seemed to work for a few days, but now Windows is caching them again. I've checked the registry and the value of
NegativeCacheTime has not changed.
What's going on here?
