    Server DNS address could not be found


    yesterday, after the most recent windows 10 update, my laptops wifi kept disconnecting every five minutes and getting the server DNS address could not be found error. Re-connecting wifi helps, but only for 5 or so minutes.

    Scanned for viruses, didn't find anything. Did sfc /scannow, also didn't find any problems there. Tried flushing DNS and using and for DNS but that didn't help either.
    I also noticed that connect automatically to wifi doesn't save the settings and that using and for DNS doesn't save the settings as well, it reverts back to the default settings.

    I have no idea what else to do. I didn't do anything on my laptop yesterday apart from updating windows 10 and watching some Netflix.
