Suddenly, a few days ago, without any updates I'm aware of, Chrome would occasionally only load certain pages. Some pages work fine, while others won't load. It's wasn't only previously cached pages that would load, previously unviewed pages would load and other pages wouldn't load. I usually get this message "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN" and occasionally this one "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG".
Now a few days into this problem, it happens even more frequently than before, every minute or two...and no pages will load once it happens now.
If I go to my Wifi icon, disconnect and reconnect, it usually starts working again. Temporarily. A few minutes later, I have to do it again.
I've done all the ipconfig release/renews, dnsflush, netsh type stuff and I tried manually setting DNS to 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11...still didn't fix it.
Other computers on the same wifi aren't affected. What is this problem ? Is it coming from my computer or from a faulty modem/wifi/phone cable perhaps ?
Any help, thanks.
I'm using chrome on windows 7, and I'm unaware of any updates or installs that would have caused it.
It all began when another family member told me wifi wasn't working on their computer (so I turned off the modem/router and turned it back on)...this got theirs working fine, and began the problems for me.
ALSO NOTE: I just tried powering the modem off and on again...I always got the yellow exclamation on the wifi signal when it came back on, saying connected with no internet access. If I run trouble shooting, it says dns could not be found. I did ip release/renew and then it started working fine, so far, BUT now the other computer trying to use the wifi has the problem. So it seems only one computer will work, and the other will have a DNS problem. Trying to renew the ip on the one thats not working now, doesn't fix it.
