Google Chrome is today the most popular browser used by users. It is available for all platforms and systems, including Windows 10. It has many interesting tools and functions, as well as additional extensions that we can add. Of course, sometimes it can have certain problems in its operation. Some of them can be easily corrected since it is usually a bad configuration. Today we are going to talk about how to fix the Err_name_not_resolved bug .
How to fix Err_name_not_resolved bug in Chrome
The Err_name_not_resolved bug that appears in Google Chrome occurs in Windows 10. Basically this means that we cannot connect to the Internet. We cannot use this program to navigate normally. We would have to take some actions to solve the problem.
It should be mentioned that this error may appear as we have written it, but it also appears in other variants. In all these cases we will not be able to navigate the Internet correctly and it may be due to a problem with DNS, the Wi-Fi network or the router itself. These are the alternative messages that we can find:
- Err_name_not_resolved WiFi : here we are logically facing a problem with the Wi-Fi network. It may happen that the drivers are outdated, that we have installed an application that creates a conflict, etc. It is advisable to always keep the drivers correctly updated.
- Err_name_not_resolved DNS : in this case it can be DNS. It is another of the most common failures when these types of messages appear. We can change DNS and see if the problem is fixed.
- Err_name_not_resolved Internet Explorer : the error may appear in other browsers and Internet Explorer is usually the most affected. The tips that we are going to explain below could help you avoid this failure.
- Err_name_not_resolved router : the router is a fundamental part of browsing the Internet. This also causes problems that sometimes cause a malfunction to appear. Simply by restarting the device we could solve certain failures.
Check the antivirus
One of the most important points to solve these errors that we mentioned is to control the antivirus. Checking that it is not blocking the connection is a first step that we must take. It is a very important tool to maintain the safety and proper functioning of our team, but it can also sometimes cause conflicts and affect team performance.
This is also joined by the firewall, in case we have. It is yet another tool that can prevent attackers and security threats from entering our system. However, a bad configuration, the fact of blocking a program (in this case Google Chrome) could damage the connection.
Sometimes security tools can give us problems connecting to the network. They are very useful to protect us from the multiple threats that are present, but they could also pose a problem to connect correctly. We should always take a look at the settings when we run into such an error.
Use Command Prompt
Through the Windows 10 Command Prompt we can execute a series of commands that help us solve problems. To start it we simply have to go to Start, type Command Prompt and open it with administrator properties. These that we are going to run could help solve different problems related to the Internet connection. not only this specific one that affects the Google browser.
Once here we are going to execute a series of commands:
- Ipconfig / flushdns
- Ipconfig / renew
- Ipconfig / registerdns
As we saw briefly before, another of the failures that Err_name_not_resolved can cause is due to problems with the DNS. We have the possibility in Windows 10 to change them easily and see if this is corrected. We can use those of the Internet operator, which are usually those used by users, but we also have many other options such as Google or CloudFlare.
To change it in Windows 10 we simply have to right-click on the icon in the taskbar, at the bottom right, access Open Network and Internet settings , enter Ethernet and there click on Change adapter options. Now we click on the network name with the second button and enter Properties. We click on Internet Protocol version 4 and Properties again. There we have to put the DNS that we are going to change.
Clear the cache in Chrome
One last solution to solve the Err_name_not_resolved problem in Google Chrome is to clear the browser cache. To do this you have to go to chrome: // net-internals / # dns in the toolbar and clear the cache. Once this is done we will only have to restart the browser. The data that the program stores over time, when browsing the Internet, could become a problem at any given time and errors like the one we mentioned may appear.
This step can be done if everything we have explained above has not been of any use. What we are going to do is uninstall Google Chrome and erase all the data that remains on the computer. Later we will install it again. This way we will get all the settings back to default values. It could happen that we have touched some parameters, installed an add-on or even some type of malware that has affected the browser. Hence, by reinstalling it again we can correct those problems.
In short, if we find this error that we have mentioned when browsing Google Chrome, we can carry out these measures that we have mentioned to try to solve the problem. Usually the solution is simple and we should not have problems to get it to work correctly again.
