The Domain Name System

for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet
or a private network
. It associates various information with domain names
assigned to each of the participating entities. Most importantly, it translates domain names meaningful to humans
into the numerical identifiers associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide.
As an example here is Googles DNS page which shows the DNS address 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. If it's a DNS problem it might help to add Googles DNS server addresses to your IPv4 properties to get around the problem. I can only guess from here as your problem is rather strange and uncommon. Have you run the batch file yet? Google Public DNS
You should be able to use the DNS of which ever network you are connecting too but it's hard to say if this is the problem or not unless I can see the ipconfig /all from your machine when it's having the connection problem.
There is a good chance that your A/V software is causing this problem also but that isn't something I can say for sure from here. Often times uninstalling the A/V software is the only way to find out if it's causing the problem or not.
It might also be helpful if you can post a screen shot of your ipconfig /all
, just type that into a command prompt and hit enter then use the snipping tool to post a screen shot.
