    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >>Click Start, type ncpa.cpl and press Enter.
    >>Right click on the connection that you use for the local connection, and then click "Properties".
    >>Click to select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", and then click "Properties".
    >>In the Internet Protocol window, change the "Preferred DNS server" to 208.67.222.222.
    >>In (TCP/IPv4) Properties, select the "Validates settings upon exit" check box.
    >>Click 'OK' twice to complete the modification.

    Repeat the steps and set the "Preferred DNS server" to 208.67.220.220 if the above fails.

    If nothing works, I’d suggest you to disable your firewall and antivirus software to test.
    Note: Please ensure that you enable your firewall and antivirus software after completing all the steps.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    To solve the problem you may try the following :

    This issue can occur due to incorrect DNS settings , DNS should be configured automatically.
    check if setting a static IP address for LAN adapter helps. Use 208.67.222.222 for dns server.

    Click Start > in the search field type ncpa.cpl > Enter.
    Right click the connection you use as local connection, click "Properties".
    Click "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > "Properties".
    In the Internet Protocol window, change "Preferred DNS server" to 208.67.222.222.
    In (TCP/IPv4) Properties, select "Validates settings upon exit" check box > "OK" > "OK".

    If everything fails, disable firewall and antivirus software then try to set up.

    Thanks.

    1. Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
    2. Right click on the connection that you use for the local connection, and then click "Properties".
    3. Click to select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", and then click "Properties".

    4. In the Internet Protocol window, let's change the "Preferred DNS server" to 208.67.222.222

    5. Click 'OK' twice to complete the modification.
