In my new home, I sometimes face power failures while working on my computer, which never happened to me before. After restarting, the internet connection stops working on that particular computer, but other devices can still use the same connection without any issues.

I am certain that it is a DNS issue because when I try to ping a URL, it fails, but if I use the IP address, it responds. I have attempted several fixes, such as flushing the DNS, resetting the internet connection, and even a system restore, but none of them have worked. The only solution that seems to work is reinstalling or doing a factory reset, which is time-consuming and inconvenient, given how often this issue occurs.

Initially, I thought it might be a hardware problem, but I have experienced it on different computers. It seems to be related to power interruptions, as one time my computer froze, and when I rebooted it, I encountered the same problem.

Although I have only experienced this problem since the power issues began, I have seen that many people are facing the same problem across different versions of Windows, including Win 7, 8, 8.1, and Win 10.

Do you have any suggestions? This problem has occurred again, and I don’t want to spend an entire day reinstalling everything.
