DNS issues
« on: January 28, 2020, 08:28:21 PM »
So it seems my DNS server isn't responding anymore. I can't access Discord or Youtube or Gmail. I can access Armageddon because I know the IP address so I'm able to post this up. Is there anything I can do to change my DNS server?

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2019/01/changing-your-dns-settings-on-windows-10/

Google's DNS is:
8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Just in case you can't get to the link above due to your existing DNS issues, I copied and pasted the steps for you below.

1. Go to the Control Panel
2. Click on Network and Internet
3. Click on Network and Sharing Center
4. Go to Change Adapter Settings.
5. You’ll see some network icons here. Select the network you’re currently connected to and right click on it. Select Properties.
6. Click on IPv4 and select Properties.
7. If “Obtain DNS server address automatically” is selected, click the radio button next to “Use the following DNS server addresses:”
8.Now enter the DNS addresses you want to use. (8.8.8.8 preferred and 8.8.4.4alternate for Googles public DNS)
9.Click on Ok and Close.
