Error 105: Unable to resolve server's DNS address


Sometimes when I boot my laptop after it's been off for a while, I'll start chromium and everything's fine, but after about a minute or two I'm unable to contiunue browsing. after about 20 s5 the page fails to load and I receive "error msg 105: unable to resolve server's DNS address."

Is there anyway to avoid this? It's so inconvenient because it lasts for about 5-10 min. After disconnecting/reconnecting a few times eventually I'm alble to resume browsing.

what OS? if it is a redhat line (fedora, centos, etc...) you can as root manually edit the /etc/resolve and make it look like this:

Code:
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 208.67.222.222
or what ever DNS server you want to use. then the next time you boot the laptop it should not have that issue.
