How To Flush DNS

Posted by : | On : 29-02-2008 | Comments 2

PC hanged, can’t seem to load your MSN Messenger even after countless times of fixing it via the MSN help.

One way of checking for errors is by flushing your DNS. How can it be achieved. Simply by using DOS commands .. (yes.. DOS commands again) one can do that.

Why Flush Your DNS?
The bad DNS will have an incorrect IP & therefore one will fail to hit the right IP. By flushing your DNS, sometimes, DNS entry that are bad will be cached and you will need to either flush the DNS cache or restart your modem. So of course why would I need to restart it when one can flush it out.

How is this possible?
In command line prompt.

c:\> ipconfig /flushdns

Done!!! That’s all that is needed
