As the title states, I am trying to connected to the internet using a LAN connection. The LAN is a school network and I have already been given the IP address and the DNS settings. I was able to get it to work for quite some time but after a while it stopped working. I would get a "DNS address could not be found" message when surfing the web. I checked my Internet Protocol v4 settings and realized that the Manual DNS settings were deleted and are now blank. The manual IP address settings were still there, only the DNS are perpetually blank. I have tried multiple times to re-input the DNS settings where they belong and can connect to the internet afterwards, but it only works for a few seconds. Afterwards the same "DNS address could not be found" message appears on chrome. Lo and behold, after checking  the Internet Protocol v4 settings once again, the DNS settings are have reset and are now blank.


tldt; DNS settings in Internet Protocol v4 keep resetting to blank values, help please.

Please post the output of a ipconfig /all from a command prompt for review.


BTW the dns messages does not always mean there is a issue with dns.  Usually its the connecton
