Windows can’t communicate with the device or resource (Primary DNS Server)” error when trying to connect to the Internet

Cause:

I faced this error when i was using my wireless ethernet adapter for internet connection on my laptop

This error look weird as i havenot faced this since start of using the wireless connection.

I was repeatedly getting pop ups showing same DNS probe error.

I thought the network adapter was broken or some hardware error but dont panic this is just a DNS host resolution error due to static DNS

Workaround:

1)press windows + R

2)type control

3)Click on Network and Internet

4)Click on Network and Sharing Center

5)Click Change adapter settings

6)Choose your internet device over here and right click and choose properties

7)Again click on properties by choosing TCP/IPv4

8) Select the automatic option instead of manual configuration

Then forget the network and try to connect to the internet after restarting the device.Hope it should work!

Hope this post might help someone from frustation!
