    Windows 8.1 (HOME not Pro) 64bit

    Man what a mess..

    Do you have a firewall on? Have you messed with any firewall rules??

    I would just backup all your files you want to keep and clean fresh install windows 8.1 if you have your key..

    It seems to be so simple, yet it's worked for the past 2 hours. No disconnects -- yet. It was driving me mad.

    Windows 8.1

    I recently changed to Avast internet Security and started to experience frequent DNS connection drop out problems so I thought I would try the solution offered by ActionFlash (#26).
    Using I looked up my ISP (Optusnet) DNS server address and reconfigured my connection as advised.

    I have no more problems, thank you.
