How Do I Flush My DNS Cache on Windows?


The following guide will walk you through flushing your DNS Cache. Every time you venture onto the Internet, DNS resolutions are being made and your computer stores many of them. Caching these resolutions can speed up your web activities because your computer no longer has to ask another computer where something is located.

Eventually, there will come a time when a bad entry is stored. There are generally two ways to remove these entries. First is to allow 24 hours to pass. During this time your computer will seek out and make the necessary DNS updates. Second is to flush your DNS cache.

  1. The first step to flushing your DNS is to open your “Windows Command” prompt.
  2. Click “Start” and type the word “Command” in the Start search field.
  3. Right-click the command prompt icon and select the option to “Run as Administrator”.
  4. In the open prompt, type “ipconfig /flushdns” (without the quotes).
    You should receive a message of your success as confirmation when the cache is cleared.

Flushing the cache removes all the information stored within the cache, forcing the computer to find new DNS information.

Samsung microphone problem?

Homer_67234xlHello, hello… I can hardly hear you, could you speak up a bit?

Meanwhile I am talking really loud into my phone, and after several calls this way, it was Dr.Google to the rescue…

The issue:
My Samsung S5 mini works fine, but people on the other end of the call hear me as if I was talking 10 meters away from the phone.

The solution:

“Clean out the tiny microphone hole with a pin”

Really, that was it; just dirt and dust blocking my voice. Glad people can hear me again, without having to scream.
