@ZakirBaqui The most effective method for fixing the issue with the DNS server being unavailable is to flush it using Command Prompt.

  • Pull up the Run dialog by simultaneously pressing the Windows key and R key.
  • Type cmd into the field and press Enter.
  • In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.

  • Follow up by typing ipconfig /release and press Enter.

  • Finally, type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.

  • Close out of the Command Prompt window and reboot your system.
