    Greetings people of tech support guy,
    Once more i am at a predicament ,you see i get frequent disconections from the internet and throught the browsers i always get a similar message as in the title above,though it varies from browser to browser or app to app its always something about the dns.
    i use an external usb wifi adapter for my pc,to clarify its not a laptop its a desktop.
    The things i already tried are as following.
    1)flush dns,
    2)restart pc(silly but yea never worked for more than 5 min)
    3)change adapter
    4)update drivers
    5)check for malwares/viruses
    6)clear browser caches
    7)netsh ip reset and the socket reset
    8)change usb port of the adapter
    9)re-install drivers

    I am not possitive that my driver instalazation is the best thats for sure,but if thats the case should i allow an application like driver booster to do it?
    Either way fill me in with your suggestions and i thank you in advance

    The correct driver is the latest one from the wireless adapter manufacturer's web site. There is no reason to use some random one.

    Have you tested to confirm that you really have a DNS server problem, or have a weak signal, or have wireless interference, or are losing connection to the router?

    problem is the publisher is tp link and they do not plan on releasing a windows 10 driver,so i use 8.1 drivers i think.
    Per example,using google dns server in my laptop brings no problem ,at least most of the times.
    Since you mentioned it during the problem the "singal bars" in the GUI appear to be 1 from the 5 they are normaly(of course i validated we are still taking about the same wlan connection).
    Im afraid i do not possess the means to test about wireless interference but its not unlikely.
    Losing connection hmm,well durring the problem i can not connect to the routers interface ,i get an error but i do not remember the error(to spare you the effort its not the typical not responding one),but i still appear connected in the gui and the available connections.

    My thinking is that you will get far better results with a wireless adapter that is compatible with Windows 10 (that is, has a Windows 10 driver).

    Does "that" mean "yes" for both of my post # 6 questions?

    To what wireless network are you connecting? I assumed that it was your own wireless router and Local Area Network (LAN).

    i am connecting with a WIFI(aka wlan adapter) adapter to my own home network.
    My router is a zte 108 2.5v.
    I disabled ipv6 in the router as well to avoid ip conflict since zte 108 is known for that.
    the network itself is broadcasting in 2.4 ghz in channel ehm 11 i think atm,though i experimented with 6~9 channel as well.

    back after some time,i bought a new router an asus one(dont member the name atm).
    currently all other computers seem to work just fine ,but my desktop either disconnects or shows dns prob start/finish no internet.
    through windows troubleshooter i get 3 possible results all the time
    1)Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding
    2)DNS Server Not Responding
    3)your computer is trying to use a dns server that is incorrect or doesn't exist .

    Other things that may help are that the singal drops from 5 bars to 4~1 all of a sudden and ping raised drasticaly.
    Any other suggestion i can try?
