2. Then select Change adapter settings.

By changing the DNS server as above, you should be able to solve the error server DNS address could not be found. But if it still doesn't work, use method number 2.


2. Using the Command Prompt Command


1. Open command prompt as administrator. Type command prompt in the search feature which is located on the lower left side of the desktop, then right click and select Run as administrator.

2. Enter the commands below one by one. For example, first type ipconfig /flushdns then press Enter key. Then proceed with the second command and so on until Exit.

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

NETSH winsock reset catalog

NETSH int ipv4 reset reset. log

NETSH int ipv6 reset reset. log

Exit


enter command prompt command enter command prompt command


3. If so, restart your PC or laptop. And try browsing as usual and you will no longer see the DNS server address could not be found error appear again.


I've tried the first method and it works, but after a few minutes it reappears. After that I tried the second method and it worked too, even now the error doesn't reappear.


Even so, there's nothing wrong if you try the two methods above, who knows the first way will work and the second way will be the other way around. Good luck!
