Original Title: Help Among Internet Connection

Hi

First of all i'm usnig a G580 Lenovo with windows 8.1 pro with media center

as you might know we must use anti filtering software such as NEXTVPN , KERIO , ETC to access some websites such as FB or Twitter in IRAN

i have two annoying problems :

all of a sudden these two problems started and they are making me crazy , i CANT reinstall windows because i purchased a software for my university work and the process for backing up and reinstall the software will last until the end of the world !

1- i can use only VPN+ service and the speed is not much faster than an old turtle !
i tested my vpn connections on another PC running on windows 7 all of them work perfect and everything goes fine and i have full access to internet

2- another problem that showed up is that sometimes i use my Samsung Galaxy MEGA WiFi Hotspot to access internet ,windows shows internet access and the diagnosis cant find any problem but when i try to open any webpage i face this error:

DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG

on the other PC everything operates normal

as i mentioned reinstalling windows is NOT an option :(

so please if you can help me solve this issue let me know how

Thank you very much

A:

I've had this myself over the last few days (first time I've seen this as well).

Restarting the router normally resolves the issue so I would try that as well.

Another thing you can try is opening a command prompt (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt). Type in "ipconfig /release" then enter, then type "ipconfig /flushdns" then enter and then "ipconfig /renew" and enter.

Let me know if the problem still occurs after trying this.

Kind regards.
