I use Chrome on Windows 10 but whenever I'm on my home network I always receive the "site cannot be reached [website]'s DNS address could not be found." It's fixed after running the ipconfig /flushdns command but it only lasts a few minutes.

 

I only get this at home and only on my laptop. I never have trouble on my desktop or working on another network away from home. I've tried resetting my router & modem, and the net stop/start dnscache command. I cant find a permanent fix to this issue. What am I missing?

Do you get the problem using OpenDNS servers. After adding OpenDNS to your setting flush your DNS cache again.

Other things to look at.

 

Disable your Ethernet Adapter, not uninstall, in Device Manager if using Wifi

Set your power setting to Maximum.
