I am having problems with my internet. The problem switches between I cannot access the internet using the default DNS settings (which I solve by setting my DNS server to Google ( and, and these settings not working and needing to switch back to the default DNS settings.

This is happening everyday. I am on Windows 10 (OS build 14393.447).

Any advice on how to fix this?

  • Windows Key -> regedit Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces -> search for your dns entry -> NameServer, Export this value for example to your desktop. Now you can change your dns Server with this regist file . – Wiffzack Dec 10 '16 at 14:14
  • When the problem occurs, does ipconfig /flushdns from the command line fix it? If so, then you have some caching issue. – milli Dec 15 '16 at 23:42

I enabled IPv6 and the issue went away.
