Hello.

 

Trying to figure out what is happening on this Dell Tablet Model # P20T

 

It is running Windows 8.1 and it is patched and updated.

 

Issue:

 

Every time Chrome is opened and more than 1 or 2 tabs are opened, I get a This webpage is not available along with the infamous DNS_Probe_Finished_No_Internet message.

 

I tried to do some basic Google searching, looking for some obvious fixes and so far nothing is working.

 

I've tested the tablet on three different wireless networks and I get the same issue every time.

 

I also want to mention that I've tested the two other popular browsers on this tablet - Internet Explorer and Firefox - and both of them are working correctly. I've opened at least 6 - 8 tabs with various webpages on both of these browsers (ESPN, Yahoo, MSN, Bleeping, NewEgg, etc) and they both work fine.

 

After some Google searching, I realized that most websites appear to be copying & pasting content from other websites :lol: so that hasn't really been much help.

 

I also want to mention that the tablet does not appear to be demonstrating any type of behavior that would point to an infection - I know this doesn't rule it out - just wanted to offer up that the tablet is not running slow, there are no pop-ups in the browsers that do work and all the other apps are working fine.

 

 

My attempts to solve this issue so far have included this classic cmd trick (run as Administrator)

 

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /all
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew

netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset

 

 

 

  • I also checked & attempted to Update any & all Drivers related to this  -  they were all up to date.

 

  • I also changed the default DNS settings to the OPEN DNS settings: 208.67.222.222   but that did not work either.

 

  • I also uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome - which wasn't easy & also tried to delete all of the Chrome traces but there was one folder that wouldn't let me delete it (and I can't remember what the error message was).

 

So there you go.

 

Not sure where to go from here and I would love to know what is causing this issue.

 

Registry edit?

Corrupt entry?

Infected?

Morning LiamP5, thanks for the quick response, unfortunately, that link includes everything I've already tried, but I appreciate it.

Condobloke, I'd say good morning, but it appears to close to 11:00 PM in your parts.  :)  Thanks for the link. Can't remember if I tried this or not, but will do so, just to cover my bases and will report back once it's completed.

 

Thanks again for the link and for checking in.

Log into your Router and try using the Google's DNS servers 

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Its solid and works perfectly fine.

My first guess is some kind of parental control or other firewall feature that is failing after a set amount of open DNS queries. Could only effect Chrome because it opens a separate processes for each tab and extensions. Try disabling all extensions to test. Also, tried safe mode with networking?

Good morning sweedishfish, thanks for the suggestion, but as I noted in my OP, I've tried this tablet on three different wireless networks and the issue remains. Even if I were to set my home router to use Google's DNS servers, what am I to do when I got to go out somewhere else? None the less, I appreciate you checking in.

Morning Trikein, I thought about this as well, as there are quite a few extensions running on Chrome and I thought about disabling them, one by one, to see if this resolves the issue. Thanks for the reminder.

 

Hope to have an update on these attempts in a day or two.

Very simply first you need to open Command prompt. and run below CMD.

Open cmd Using window + R 

Type CMD and hit enter.

Now you will see command prompt,

Just run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.

 
Now just restart and enjoy, You can use many other supporting ways for better if above not working, Just visit How To Seeks for this error and get more.
 
Thanks

Hi, everyone.

 

Recently I have been facing this error on my Google Chrome "dns_probe_finished_no_internet". I tried all the methods provided in the link shared by @LiamP5. The first method seems to work but temporarily.

Then I followed the 2nd solution provided in https://wpvkp.com/dns_probe_finished_no_internet/ . It worked and then windows insider update came and again I am facing the same issue.

 

I discussed this issue with Microsoft but they my device drive is up to date, the problem is with Chrome and so use EGDE, WOW.

 

Please kindly help me.

 

My system configuration is:

Os: windows 10, latest build.

Ram: 16GB DDR3

GPU: Nvidia 930MX

Processor: Core i5 6th gen

Network Driver: Qualcomm Atheros AR956x

 

I have already tried reinstalling the Chrome, I tried to create new chrome profile, I cleared my dns cache, I have already reset my winsock. What else should I do?
