Windows 10 re-problems Internet connection

Posted by on August 12, 2016.

I’ve mentioned my saga with Windows 10 and an intermittent Internet connection problem.

After about a week of work I found a workaround that seemed to be fairly stable.

This week was, of course, patch Tuesday. Wednesday night the machine rebooted itself.

The workaround that I had implemented (of pointing to OpenDNS or Google’s DNS) now no longer works.

Fortunately, flushing the DNS still does. But it does mean that I have to leave the admin command prompt window open (on both our desktops), and keep restting the connection on a fairly regular basis.

And what is it that Microsoft has done this week to make things even worse than they were before?
