The options, ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’ and ‘Obtain DNS server address automatically’ should be selected by default. To change your DNS server to Google’s DNS server, go to your Network Connections settings. Right-click the Start menu and select "Network Connections", or go to Settings and click" Network & Internet".
These are established on internet, more frequently by Google and/or OpenDNS. This is the error that frustrates Windows users, mainly the ones that run Windows 10 on their machines. This issue was a sudden surprise after the particular 1903 upgrades when the internet got disconnected and network troubleshooting gave useless results. However, since DNS servers are used in various devices, we have a quick tip and solution for macOS users at the end of this guide.
DNS servers are used, since it is easier for us to understand and remember words than numbers, but also because computers need to use IP addresses to access websites. A DNS server is rather like a translator between an IP address and the hostname. Furthermore, computers store DNS responses locally, so the DNS request does not happen every time you connect to a particular domain name that you have previously visited. Once your computer has determined the IP address associated it with a domain name, it will remember that for a period of time.
To fix a DNS server not responding problem, try reaching the site with another device like a phone, since if this works you’ll know that the issue is with your other device. Alternatively, try to visit the site using a different web browser, such as Firefox or Chrome.
The purpose of it is to resolve domain names for any host on the Internet. You will have to change your network settings to use to Google DNS servers. Sometimes, your DNS providers can suffer errors due to heavy and outstanding traffic.
Then, reconnect them to the power supply, wait for them to reload, and try the website again. If this is the case, reset your router to resolve the issue.
This can slow down the connection and eventually cause an error to occur. You do have the option to wait till your internet service provider fixes this issue themselves but if you wish to test your skills, you can go for the alternative. What you can do is, switch to a free public DNS server(s).
To use Google Public DNS, you need to explicitly change the DNS settings in your operating system or device to use the Google Public DNS IP addresses. The procedure for changing your DNS settings varies according to operating system and version (Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chrome OS) or the device (computer, phone, or router). We give general procedures here that might not apply for your OS or device; consult your site vendor documentation for authoritative information. The fourth and final step is changing the DNS server address on Windows.
Once in the web interface, you’ll probably find a DNS server option on one of the pages. Change this and the setting will affect your entire network. The option may be under LAN or DHCP server settings, as the DNS server is provided via the DHCP protocol to devices that connect to your router. In most cases, the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) automatically configures your system to use the IP addresses of your ISP’s domain name servers.
If this works, try uninstalling and reinstalling your original browser to solve the problem. You could also try power cycling your modem and router by disconnecting them and letting them sit for at least 30 seconds.
