Hi jiturajpattnaik,

It appears to be an issue with the 'DNS'. Please perform the following steps:
- Click 'Start' and type 'ncpa.cpl' (without quotation) in the 'Search text box' > Tap 'Enter' to view the 'Network Connections'
- (If using a wired connection) Right-click 'Local Area Connection', and click 'Properties' > Select the 'Networking tab' > Double click 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)' (Refer to the image below) > Please capture and share status of the 'DNS Server Address'.
- If using a 'Wireless Connection', perform the above mentioned steps with the 'Wireless Connection' listed in the 'Network Connections'.



If it is set to 'Automatic', try to flush/register the 'DNS Settings':
- Open an 'Elevated Command Prompt' Elevated Command Prompt
- Type 'ipconfig /flushdns' (Without quotation) > 'Enter'
- Type 'ipconfig /registerdns' (Without quotation) > 'Enter'
Note: Confirm the changes, if prompted.
- Restart the unit and check results.

If the issue persists, you may also try the 'Google DNS' to see if that helps:



- If there are any IP addresses listed in the 'Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server' , write them down for future reference > Replace those addresses with the IP addresses of the Google DNS servers: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 > Save settings and recheck results

If the 'DNS values' are fixed, please share the details of your 'Internet Service Provider'.

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

Hi jiturajpattnaik,

Thank you for the reply.

It appears that the corrupt 'DNS cache' was causing issues with 'internet connectivity'. Flushing 'DNS cache' cleared the current settings and allowed a fresh start. Glad that the issue is fixed.

Do reply if you have any further questions; glad to assist.
