    Default DNS Issue

    I have a DNS issue

    Sites take too long to load and sometimes hit a DNS error before loading the content.
    They always load the content eventually even if I have to hit reload but its a pain in the ass.

    Chrome
    Version 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    What else do you need?

    Flush your DNS cache.... ipconfig /flushdns

    Clear your browser cache

    Restart your modem

    See if the issue remains

    Give googles DNS a try.

    Primary - 8.8.8.8
    Secondary -- 8.8.4.4


    To change it you can go into your router and alter the settings there. ( make sure you note down the current in case you need to revert them)

    Not using a VPN are you ?

    You can also try open DNS. Full instructions and settings from their Page https://use.opendns.com/#win10

    I changed it on the computer to default ISP settings see if that helps.
    It was on "Auto"

    If that doesn't work I will move to the Google DNS

    I could see nowhere to change it on the router.

    No VPN at least not on this machine, my work laptop has one but that is connected through Wi-Fi and has no issues.
