Windows 10: dns probe finished no internet

    dns probe finished no internet

    I've been getting this, as well as WiFi is "Limited access" when I hover it and it has that triangle.

    I can only think of OpenVPN causing such, so i uninstalled it. I reset my network card, but it's still giving me this when booting my computer up from sleep mode, as a example. Then it disappears after 3-5 min... or even a hour.

    I've manually set to Google DNS, but doesn't seem to help it.

    Hi Oxide,

    After some trial-and-error testing of all suggested fixes, which I found over the internet, here’re what worked for me to solve "DNS Probe Finished No Internet" issue and might work for you as well.

    Method 1: Change Default DNS Address to Open DNS

    Here all you have to do is change your default automatically obtained DNS server addresses to open DNS or Google DNS. To do this, follow below mentioned steps:

    Step 1:
    Right click on Network icon located in Windows Task Bar Menu.

    Step 2:
    Click on ‘Open Network and Sharing Center.’

    Step 3:
    Click on Local Area Connection with whom who are presently connected and click onProperties.

    Step 4:
    Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’ and click on Properties.

    Step 5:
    Now in newly opened windows, select the radio button that reads ‘Use the following DNS server address:’

    Step 6:
    Now in the ‘Preferred DNS Server’ box type in and in ‘Alternate DNS Server’ type in

    Step 7:
    Now check the box that says ‘Validate settings upon exit’ and then click on OK. That’s it.
