Windows 7: DNS does not respond on every device that is using my network

DNS does not respond on every device that is using my network

My DNS does not respond on every device. I have tried using commands like these on my laptop:
netsh int ip reset (This worked but only for a short amount of time)
ipconfig /flush dns

I have also tried disabling my antivirus but that didn't resolve the issue.
I even tried resetting my whole router but that also only worked for about short amount of time.

Can you ping router when this happens?

Try: netsh winsock reset

How are you checking DNS when it fails?
When it happens try in cmd: nslookup
enter a website i.e.,
and see if you get an IP address in return
if it fails, enter server
enter the same website, see if an IP returns

I do get an IP address back. I already tested some websites on my browser and all of them seem to work. Thanks!

USB device causes keyboard to not respond
Hello all, When I have a USB device, even a flash drive, plugged into one of the front ports *before* I start Windows, the keyboard becomes unresponsive while on the login screen. It stays that way for at least a minute, after which time it responds. Does anyone else have a similar issue?...
