Ideapad 500s - DNS server isn't respnding error on Windows 10

2016-10-01, 12:14 PM

I have recently purchased a new laptop ideapad 500s. Since the day I bought it I am having internet connectivity issues. On system restart or when device is restored from sleep, the internet gets disconnected and a yellow asterisk appears on the WiFi connection in the status bar. On running windows diagnosis, the problem result says "DNS server isn't respnding". The only way the system does get connected to WiFi is if I restart my WiFi modem after the system has started. I have tried all solutions available online to fix the problem. I tried using static DNS entries, tried flushing DNS, updated my WiFi device driver, disabled sleep of the device in power management and even reset Windows using the option available in Windows 10. None of the above methods have helped me resolve the problem. Could this be a hardware problem in the laptop? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
