fix temporary dns issues ipconfig /fush
My internet connection is coming router over a strange Belarusian ADSL modem "Промсвязь". This device serves as ADSL modem and a Wireless Router.

Periodically I'm experiencing issues with DNS, where there is internet but DNS resolving stops woring even though in ipconfig /all I can see DNS settings are proper:

C:Usershipo> ipconfig /all

The fix to situation is to Restart Promsvijazy and restart my Notebook. As this fix takes a lot of time I found another "work around". Make Windows Flush its DNS servers (forget old DNS servers and re-assign them again)

C:Usershipo> ipconfig /flushdns

Windows IP Configuration Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.


 

Other useful commands to make connection re-initiate completely are:

ipconfig /renew

Renews all Adapter settings (Lan, Wiki, PPP etc.) – re-assign IPs / re-initiate connections and

ipconfig /release

Releases any established connection

    By the way the questionable Promsvyaz is 2.5 half bigger than a normal wireless router 🙂 🙂 🙂
