Windows 7: "Server not found" problem on FF 39, Win 7

You can just change the DNS IPs in your own PC. But sure that will work too. ipconfig /flushdns so you don't have to restart the PC to changes to take effect. But if you change DNS from router run in order:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns

or just restart PC, whichever you feel easy. Stop ZenMate when trying these settings.

ZenMate free has slow speeds, that is normal.

ZenMate is off.
I opened LAN Properties > IPv4, and changed DNS addresses, that is: I entered 208.67.222.222 in Preferred DNS Server and 208.67.220.220 in Alternate DNS Server.
Since I did that in my PC LAN properties, not in router, I did not entered any commands (those which you mentioned in your last post).

Bottom line: after 24 hours without Server not found messages, they are starting to appear again, and the pages are taking very long to load. I do think this problem is unfixable

After my previous post, I decided to try resetting the internet connection. I typed these commands:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh winsock reset

Server not found message still appears (though not every time).
I checked my router settings again, and found that DNS numbers do not match (see attachment). I wonder if the DNS numbers in LAN connection and in router settings should be identical..?

Nope, router assigns an automatic DNS server when your client is configured to do so. If you manually enter a DNS server on the PC, it overrides (actually doesn't even check router) router settings.

What are the other options for DNS relay in your router settings by the way? First time I see such a setting.

You tried with IE too, right? Is this computer wide or browser issue?

Edit: I was hoping to see the option you get when you click DNS Relay box :)

Yes...in the initial post I mentioned that I tried with IE, and the same problem occurs there.
As for the DNS Relay box, the other option is Use Auto discovered DNS server only

Lets make sure this is not a hardware fault:
Please download and make a bootable DVD/USB of Linux Mint MATE. Boot with it (no installation needed) and see if you can get a connection with it.

OK; which of these versions should I download?
Download - Linux Mint
Since I have never booted from Linux Mint MATE, I'd appreciate your input as to how to make connection with it...
