Tech Tip: How to fix DNS errors

Description: Sometimes a computer will inform the user that it is having a DNS error and can't connect to the internet. Flushing the DNS can often fix this:
  1. Hold down the Windows key and select the R key once to open the Run window.

    Windows key

    Run window

  2. Type cmd into the space there and select OK. This will open the Command Prompt window.


  3. In that window, type ipconfig /flushdns and select the Enter key.

    ipconfig /flushdns

  4. Once that's done, type ipconfig /release and select the Enter key.

    ipconfig /iprelease

  5. Then type ipconfig /renew and select the Enter key.

    ipconfig /renew

  6. Then type exit and tap Enter. You have now reset the DNS.
