Are you having problems with your DNS? Are you running into DNS issues whenever you attempt to connect your internet network? Are you plagued with various problems whenever you are a loading a certain website or blogsite? If you are then you are actually having problems with your domain name server. A domain name server is a actually the server that configures website and blogsite addresses so that your browser (whether Google, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Bing) can create a link to connect them. Sometimes, you lose connection from the server because of various reasons like server problems or corrupted network setting. If you are facing such types of challenges, do not lose hope and panic. Remain calm and try to do the things below:
1. Try to connect a new device to your network.
The device could be anything. It could be your smarty phone, your PDA, your tablet, your desktop or your laptop. Before you dive into the more elaborate part of DNS problem fixing, the first thing that you need to do is check whether you have network connectivity. This is a way to narrow down the possible sources of your DNS problems. So as instructed earlier, try to connect another device to your modem or your WiFi network.
Once you are connected, attempt to load a website or blogsite using the second gadget. Now, if you are still receiving DNS errors, then the error can only be blamed either to your internet service provider or your internet’s router. On the other hand, if your second device is able to connect to the website that you are trying to load then the issue can be blamed to the first machine that encountered loading problems.
2. Try to power cycle your internet’s router and modem.
If the first step does not work, attempt to power cycle your internet’s router and modem. How to do a power cycle? Simply unplug your router’s and modem’s power cable. Let them rest for a few seconds to a minute so that possible residual charges are already gone and their memory is already emptied. After the one minute is up, replug your modem and router and wait for the connection to stabilize. After the stabilization is complete, all you need to do is try to load the website again using the first computer. If the problem is still not fixed then it’s time for you to reset or change the configuration. This part is only applicable to mobile devices.
3. Use another browser.
This is the easiest way to isolate a DNS problem. If you are having a problem with Google Chrome then try Firefox or Internet Explorer then attempt to connect to the internet again. If the issue still remains unresolved then the browser does not have a problem but the setting of your computer.
Meanwhile, if you are able to connect to the internet when you used a different browser, then try to fix the old and first browser that you have used in uploading the website. Most of the time, problems related to DNS originate from the proxy settings of your browser.
If your problem is more related to DNS lookup then search the internet for a DNS Lookup Tool solution because the above fixes are not applicable to lookups.
