Windows 10: DNS Server unknown/Unknown Network

    DNS Server unknown/Unknown Network


    Hi,

    I've been struggling for months with this problem.

    My laptop won't connect to some networks. Usually there are networks like that on my university or other shared networks.
    The problem I get is that it doesn't recognize the DNS server. Usually it is solved whenever I restart my laptop, but then the problem returns after a while.

    I have entered a automatic DNS address, tried programmes that have flushed my DNS and so on, but nothing seems to help. Is there any other solution out there that will allow me to stay connected?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum try setting dns to 208.67.222.222 & 208.67.220.220 the error can be you have no connection as that will give a dns error as well

    Thanks!

    This is not helping though, it doesn't make any difference.

    If they are domains or private networks, you will never be able to connect.
