Recently i was having problem with my internet going down at random times, after longer PC usage (6-8 hours).
The issue was very weird, because i could ping an ip address like:
ping 18.104.22.168 -> No problem, response received
ping google.com -> hangs, unable to resolve dns
So of course it seemed like DNS problem. I tried to track the issue and it's caused on software level, because other PC in the network are fine. I tried disabling every possible service that could be an issue and finally i hit the right one:
DNS Client Service
When the problem is happens, i'm unable to restart/stop the service using service manager. I got message about it being unresponsive. I had to manually kill svchost.exe hosting the service, and voila - internet works.
So overall it seems that my IP stack or something is bugged at Windows OS level. I remember there was a command that would reset all Win7 network settings to default, how is it at windows 10?
Can you help me out, so the issue does not come back?
