Solved DNS issues? Can't browse web

September 30, 2017 at 17:23:16
Specs: Windows 10 Pro x64, Intel i7 6700k, 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM
I'm unable to load web pages.

Sometimes it'll partially load a page, then get stuck or time out.

Pinging the site (eg. Google.com) in command prompt shows that instead the router is responding to the pings. Nslookup times out. However pinging google's IP address does work, yet I can't browse their page by using the IP instead of the URL.
Services like TeamSpeak and Skype still works.

What's going on? I suspect DNS issues but I can't physically access the router to restart it... Any alternative solutions? (I'd also like to know what would cause the router to respond to pings that aren't directed to its address)

Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)

✔ Best Answer
Edit the network settings for the network card on your computer.
Only set the DNS server manually and put in an alternative DNS server like 8.8.8.8.
This can be done in the Adapter settings / Internet protocoll version 4.

RainBawZ: the router is responding to the pings
Do we get to choose how the router responded, or are you saying the router is pretending to be Google?

I think you really need to talk to whomever has control of the router and have them check it's settings and ensure the DHCP settings are correct as well as their own DNS settings.

Nobody here is going to be able to help you if you can't actually manage the router.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
