Re: Bt hub wireless ok but no internet on my PC via Ethernet?

Tried running scans in safe mode and flushed the DNS but still occurring, the DNS keeps reverting back to 127.0.0.1 and nothing will keep it in automatic or 8.8.8.8??

DNS constantly reverting to 127.0.0.1???

As above, the DNS keeps reverting to this and I loose internet connection after about a minute. I've tried numerous malware and antivirus software but nothing seems to help. Also tried a DNS cache flush and several other things but it just constantly reverts back to 127.0.0.1 after about a minute. Been working on it for 3 days not and have completely had enough, I really need to get back online. Any help will be much appreciated.

At a command prompt type   netstat -ano|find ":53" 

 

Report back the result

You could always use 'system restore' and restore the PC to a previous state before the problem started.

I would go with the command prompt that licquorice has suggested. Something is running and changing your DNS and this should show what it is.

 

Have you at anytime installed any programs or OpendDNS to cover what Internet Browsing you are doing?

Also proxy servers can change the DNS settings to point to LocalHost (127.0.0.1). Make sure that you are not running any browser addons which may be intercepting your web browsing.

No, not that I know of? I've carried our numerous virus scans, clean ups but nothing.
