I'm having problems with the "DnS" server.
It says stuff along the lines of dns server not found etc. I can't connect to the internet because of it . I've googled this and tried every suggested method and I still can't connect to the internet. Any help is appreciated

DNS stands for Domain Name System. It associates domain names with IP addresses and other information.

When you type "thetechgame.com" in your browser, a DNS server tells the browser that you're looking for the IP 104.20.0.52.

If you can open a command line window (Win+R and type "cmd" and press enter) and enter "ipconfig -all" and paste the result in a reply, I can see if your connection has a DNS server. Your router will usually handle it.

You can also run the network troubleshooter to fix some basic problems.

I don't know if this helps but I keep seeing things like media disconnected.

I also seen somewhere that it might be something to do with TCP /IPv6. number IPv4 has connectivity but number 6 doesn't.

I don't think I make sense I have no idea what I'm doing

"ipconfig -all" shows all network adapters including ones you're not using. If you can post the results here, I can help.

Spot on r00t! - Flush your DNS and then release and renew your IP:

You have a DHCP lease from your router and you're using it for DNS. All good here. Renewing the lease won't do anything.

I would start by disabling adapters and virtual adapters that you aren't using.

Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings. Right click > Disable every adapter but "Wi-Fi".

Another thing you can try is entering a different DNS server for your computer to use instead of your router. Right now, your computer is sending DNS requests to your router which sends the requests on to the ISP's DNS servers. If there's a problem with the router's configuration or DNS service, this will fix it.

Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings. Right click > Properties. Scroll to "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", make sure it's box is checked, and click Properties. Tick "Use the following DNS server addresses" and enter 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 under preferred and alternate respectively. These are Google's public DNS server addresses.

I did all these steps and I still have the same problem. The dns server isn't responding
However when I was looking at the status I noticed ipv4 is connected but ipv6 is said to have no network access.
So do I have a problem with ipv6 ?
