Re: Windows 10 - Windows Update unable to connect to internet

Thanks for that however I am aware what the fix is. I was pointing out to the poster, perhaps clumsily, that what he posted was not "the best fix". It was a fix but only if you have a wireless connected device.

You might as well leave your DNS settings configured with the Google server addresses.

 

The Google DNS server settings are 8.8.8.8 (primary) and 8.8.4.4 (secondary).

 

You can also use settings for OpenDNS which are 208.67.222.222 (primary) and 208.67.220.220 (secondary).

 

I use a combination of both of those with 8.8.8.8 as primary and 208.67.222.222 as secondary.

For those that are new to this thread the advice to change the DNS settings has been posted over a dozen times so it is not necessary to keep posting the information about how to do it. Just read through the thread and you will see what is involved in changing them and which settings to use.

Thing is when the microsoft guy tried all those setting mine still would not connect

it was only when i connected via my Mobile Data that the updates started to work

putting it back to the normal links the updates stopped

it stumped the guy so he handed it over to his 2nd line support still awaiting a call.

London - Just checked and it does appear that Windows 10 updates are now working using the default DNS settings.

Re: Windows update problems

can you be more specific  as your wording is unclear.  Your saying that the problem has returned and now update is not working?

 What are auto settings, what part of country are you in etc.

if so report it to BT
