    DNS Error constantly occuring, Some sites work, some dont


    Hi all
    For the past month i have been getting disconnected from my favourite game guild wars 2, after researching the error code it has been linked back to the DNS error. i have restarted, factory reset the router, restarted windows, formatted windows, disabled and re-enabled the Ethernet Port on my computer but have had no success,
    sometimes restarting the router fixes the problem, and sometimes it doesn't
    i have changed the ipv4 connections to use the Google server addresses, but this did not fix the problem
    i have also used the ipconfig/flushdns command which also does not work

    The game client Steam will connect, but Team-speak 3 and other websites will not.

    Any help or suggestions are greatly welcome!!

    Did you try one of the free DNS servers?

    Maybe it's just your ISP's Dns acting up.
