When I reopen adapter properties after having previously changed IPv4 or IPv6 settings, I find that the changes have reverted back to obtain automatically. I am trying to use google dns 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52 but I have also tried changing all the other settings and they revert too. It doesnt seem to matter which adapter I try either.
Windows 7 prof sp1 64bit.
MOBO is as rock p67 extreme 6 which has 2 Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet Controllers
A TP-link usb wireless adapter.
I can connect to the network wirelessly or via ethernet.
I don't control the network though and I don't have access to the router settings.
I'm not sure what router they use and the most I have on the type of connection is that it is resold from AAPT (an Australian ISP)
What I've tried:
I had quite a few suggestion via google. Here are some of the ones I tried.
Iv'e scanned with malware bytes.
Checked there are no local group policies configured.
uninstalled/reinstalled the adapters
updated the adapter drivers.
Put this in an elevated command prompt. (Not really sure what it does though)
- ipconfig /flushdns
- nbtstat -R
- nbtstat -RR
- netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt (there was a similar one that I tried as well something like netsh int ip reset reset)
- netsh int ipv4 reset
- netsh int ipv6 reset
- netsh winsock reset
I haven't been game to mess with the registry or reinstall/repair windows just yet. Though I'm willing if that is the only option.
I have rebooted a bleeptonne in the process.
Any help would be really appreciated.
*In case you wonder why I need to use a different DNS. The building I live in owns the network and they enforce a monopoly on internet services. Their network is really poor in general but the DNS server is especially bad and frequently times out. I previously used google dns to get around a similar problem on my phone and it worked great.
