Very simple, if in Google Chrome you receive a DNS error or DNS problem. Then you can follow these steps to solve it:

  1. First you must open the Command Prompt or Windows System Symbol. You can do this by going to Start / Search. You type CMD or with the Windows + R command to open the execute window and type cmd.
  2. Then you must execute a series of commands one by one that I will show you next, without changing the order:
  • ipconfig / relay
  • ipconfig / flushdns
  • ipconfig / renew
  • netsh int ip set dns
  • netsh winsock reset

When you have executed all the commands and the system finishes the processes, you must restart your PC to finish. This way you can solve the DNS error when you try to access a website with Google Chrome or any other browser. You can apply this same technique for other error messages such as "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN" or "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET".

If after this, you still have connection problems, it may be due to a problem with your service provider or you do not have a DNS configured. To solve this problem, you would have to contact your provider to carry out an inspection on your DNS server or you can choose to configure a public DNS like Google's.

Setting up a DNS address is very simple, just follow these steps:

  1. First you must access the network center and shared resources. For this, go to Start / Control Panel / Networks and Internet / Network Center and shared resources.
  2. Then you must click on Local Area Connection.
  3. Now you must enter properties and look for the item "Internet protocol version 4).
  4. When you have found it, click on properties.
  5. Now a window will appear, you must activate "Use the following DNS server addresses:". You must type the two Google addresses that are "" and "" and click on accept.

Once all this is done, surely you will not have another problem with DNS or DNS error, if you have any questions you can leave a comment.
