    Default "The DNS server isn't responding"

    Almost every day for the past week, my internet connection has been lost and I get the same message: "The DNS server isn't responding."

    To get back online, I have to run a "restart".

    Is there a problem with my PC or is it a Vodafone issue?

    I am on a fibre connection.

    You might try using a different DNS than the one provided by Vodafone. I am also on Vodafone fibre and have had no problem.

    In the meantime, I have carried out a DNS flush via 'Command Prompt'.

    Time will tell
