    How to fix DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET

    In this guide, I will explain five useful methods that you can use to resolve DNS that are solved without Internet errors in Chrome.

    Configure the DNS Servers

    The first step is to replace the default DNS server on your computer or device with a third-party DNS server such as Google DNS or OpenDNS.

    By default, your computer uses the default DNS server that you extracted from an Internet service provider (ISP). However, this default DNS server is sometimes unstable and does not respond. This is one reason why you experience this problem and many others.

    To change the default DNS server on your computer or device, you can read this article to find out how. Step-by-step articles that tell users how to change DNS servers on their computers or devices, including Windows, Mac OS X, iOS and Android.

    You can also use this method to switch between your favorite DNS servers faster, rather than using them. A similar issue DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN you may see on Chrome.

    After changing the DNS server, update the website to check whether the error did not occur. Sometimes, you must delete / delete all DNS caches so that this works.

    To delete the DNS cache on your Windows PC
    1. Open a command prompt program
    2. Type: ipconfig /flushdns
    3. Press Enter
    Along with these command, you need to set DNS servers to following:
    1. 8.8.8.8 DNS Server
    2. 8.8.4.4 Alternate DNS Server
    Changing DNS servers also helps you avoid and help to to surf blocked web pages. If at all that is combined with some VPN (Virtual Private Network) service, you can cut down or access any web content that is blocked geographically, such as Netflix or Hulu and Amazon Prime.

    Clear history of Google Chrome, cache files, cookies

    Before deleting data from Google Chrome, you can do other checks using other Internet browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera or UC Browser, to see whether the error originates from your browser or not. If you can access the website normally with one of these browsers, the cause of this DNS error might be your Google Chrome browser.

    However, if you cannot access the website with this browser, errors can occur for other reasons. No need to delete Chrome history, files in cache or cookies.

    To delete browsing history, cache files and Chrome cookies, read this guide to learn how to reduce chrome  high CPU usage and make it faster. I will shortly write a guide to suggest you save your Google Chrome data before continuing if you change your mind and want to retrieve your browser information, such as the website you visited before, but don't remember it.

    Fix PROBE Error with Command Prompt

    If the two methods above don't work, you can try to fix DNS errors that have been terminated without DNS in Google Chrome. You use a series of commands that allow you to reset / release / update your address Local IP.
    1. Open command prompt program by pressing Windows + R, then type cmd and hit enter.
    2. Then write: netsh winsock reset in the command line program and press Enter
    3. Restart your Windows PC and your Google Chrome will work.
    You can also correct this DNS error by using the following command:
    1. ipconfig /release
    2. ipconfig /renew
    3. ipconfig /flushdns
    4. netsh int ip set dns
    5. netsh winsock reset
    Open a command prompt and then run this command one by one. After that, exit the command request program and then restart your PC.

    Reset Router Configuration

    Before restarting, resetting or modifying your router or modem configuration, you must verify the scope of the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET error.

    If this only happens in your Google Chrome browser while other browsers like Mozilla Firefox or Opera are still functioning correctly, you can skip this method.

    However, if all computers cannot access the Internet, including a browser, application, or email, try restarting your computer, restarting your router or modem, and changing configuration.

    You can also disconnect your router or modem connection from the power supply, wait at least five minutes and then reconnect the cable to your router or modem.

    Reset Firewall and Filter Applications

    Sometimes, unwanted services like firewall applications or similar programs block several websites for several reasons. You can temporarily deactivate this application to verify whether this error was caused or not. If this program gives a DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET error, you must uninstall it and look for alternatives. Even after disabling they are showing up after restarting the computer you need to disable such programs in startup configuration.

    So, basically, to fix a complete DNS investigation without Internet (or DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET), you must continue as follows:
    • Change your default DNS server with a third-party DNS server.
    • Clean the cache file, cookies, and history of Google Chrome
    • Use the command prompt to run various commands, such as resetting Netsh WinSets, IPConfig / Release, IPConfig / Renew and various other commands.
    • Delete all DNS caches with the command ipconfig / flushdns.
    • Restart, restart, or change router or modem settings
    • Uninstall programs that you use to filter websites or disable firewalls.
