Dns Probe Finished No Internet

DNS Probe Finished No Internet or also known as Dns_Probe_Finished_No_Internet is a common error in Google Chrome. This issue is common for many users.

This error is usually caused by a problem in the default DNS server your computer or device uses. It is possible to fix the problem by switching your default DNS server for OpenDNS or Google’s DNS.

Sometimes, however, this error could be caused by other factors. You cannot simply change the DNS server to fix the problem. To fix the problem, you could try clearing Google Chrome data (cookies and cached files), using Command Prompt commands. You can also uninstall apps, reset your router or modem, or reset it.

Fix DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET Chrome Error

  1. Clear Google Chrome DNS cache

Clearing Google Chrome’s DNS Cache could be the best solution to DNS Probe Error.

Step 1. Simply visit the URL ‘chrome://net-internals/#dns‘.

Step 2. Click Clear Host Cache next to Host resolver cache.

Step 3. The websites will work properly.

Step 4. This step is the simplest and most effective way to fix the DNS server issue.


Open DNS to Change Your DNS Address

This worked well for me. It was as simple as changing my computers’ DNS server addresses from Open DNS to automatically. Click on the network icon in Windows task bar and then click on Network and Sharing Center.

After that, click on “Local Area Connection” and then click on “Properties”. Next, click on ‘Internet Protocol Version 4’ and hit Properties> again. Select the radio button that reads ‘Use these DNS server addresses’. Next, type 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.220.220 in the preferred DNS box. Finally, check the box that reads ‘Validate settings after exit’ and click OK.

This will change the DNS server addresses of your computer to Open DNS, which is one among the most reliable and secure free DNS servers. You can also choose any other free public DNS server from the list. Try loading the pages that were showing errors and check if they are solved. If this doesn’t work, try solution 2.

Reboot your computer: There are likely to be issues with your computer’s ability to connect to the Internet due to a program that is acting strangely or an update that occurred in the background. Rebooting your computer will allow you to reload all programs and install any updates if necessary. Although it might not fix the problem, it is worth a try.

Restart the Router: Unplug the router’s power supply and then plug it back in to see if the internet is available.
