Flush DNS Stampa

  • 18

Perform a DNS flush if you are having PC connectivity issues.

Regular Internet usage causes your computer to automatically cache IP addresses and other domain name system results. Clearing (or "flushing") this cache will refresh the data, getting rid of outdated data that may be causing connection issues.

 

NOTE: Complete these steps using an admin account. You will be typing prompts into the CMD console, so it is very important that you enter the commands exactly as shown.

The following steps are specific to PC users. If you use a Mac, learn how to reset your DNS cache straight from Apple.

Setting an alternate DNS:

While a DNS refresh might solve your connection problems, the DNS itself could potentially not be working as intended, and connection issues will continue no matter how many times you flush your DNS cache.

You can check if you DNS is failing by trying to switch to a public DNS like Google DNS by following the steps on how to use Google Public DNS straight from developers.google.com.

  • Google DNS might actually be slower than your normal DNS, but is useful to test and see if your connection problems are coming from your local DNS.
