error 105: Unable to resolve the server's DNS address

error 105: Unable to resolve the server's DNS address - - Why does this mean and how do I resolve it?

I get this message typically once or twice a day, usually in the afternoon, when I try to go to the internet.  I can be using IE or Google Chrome - still get the message.  

Eighty-five percent of the time, I get connected just fine.  But when I get this message, I unplug the modem wire from the power strip, wait 10 second, plug it in and after another few minutes, I'm connected to the internet.  How do I resolve this regular error??

Hi,

Have you contact your internet service provider (ISP) as DNS usually are ISP related. Have they reset their modem or router not just power cycle?

Have you try the following steps below

Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. Right click on it and 'Run as Administrator'. Type the following and hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns
