    DNS servers can't be found in Opera & Chrome


    Hello,
    I'm having an odd issue. When I attempted to visit a site I go to frequently, in Google Chrome and in Opera I get a message that the DNS server can't be found. I cleared the browser cache in Chrome, closed it, and reopened it. This didn't help. I can reach the site with Firefox and Edge.

    I can also reach the site with my iPad, using the Safari browser.

    Any ideas?

    Never mind, I hit reload a few times and the problems seem to have fixed themselves.

    Well, I'm having this problem again. It's only with the Opera and Chrome browsers on my Windows 10 laptop. The sites are both accessible from Opera and Chrome on my Windows 10 netbook. Both are on the same network behind a router. The laptop is running ESET Smart Security. The netbook is running Windows Defender with a trial version of Malwarebytes AntiExploit. If it comes to ESET being the problem, this issue isn't worth disabling my firewall, as the site is available through Firefox and Edge on the laptop. I'm just wondering what the problem might be.

    And maybe asking the question here is the magic solution because, once again, I refresh the page and the site is available. Can anyone shed some light on what might cause a DNS error message on only 2 browsers and on only one Windows device on the same network?
