    Hello. First of all, I really hope I'm posting this on the right forum hahaha. Ok so, I tend to play lots of online multiplayer games on my computer and browse through various websites and what not, blah blah blah, putting the games aside, you could say i'm your average computer user.

    Thing is that after a day or two, I can't find any servers in my games and many websites won't load on my browser. Unless I flush my DNS that is. I don't really have a problem with doing so, but it can get annoying having to do it everyday. It doesn't seem like most people have to deal with this, so I was wondering, is there anyway I can browse the internet and play games without worrying about whether or not I flushed or will have to flush my DNS?

    Thanks in advance to whoever replies!

    Can you open command prompt and run a ipconfig /all command and post the information in your next reply (Please do this first before changing the DNS)

    Next try using Googles Public DNS to see if the problem persists or not. Link below has all the information in regards to using Google's DNS.
