  • Hi,


    This issue can occur by incorrect DNS settings. I suggest you perform the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.


    1. Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.

    2. Right click on the connection that you use for the local connection, and then click "Properties".

    3. Click to select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", and then click "Properties".


    4. In the Internet Protocol window, let's change the "Preferred DNS server" to


    5. Click 'OK' twice to complete the modification.


    If the issue persists, please repeat the steps and change the "Preferred DNS server" to

  • I have entered the DNS manually onto the desktop and that has worked rather well., should i also be entering the DNS manully on the notebook computer that my desktop is connected to using the the wifi?

  • Hi. I have question.

    I have that same event 1006 and 1014 in my lab ( without access to internet and i dont need this).

    This is appears when i change DNS server.I put there IP address my domain controller.

    I use for this this command:

    netsh interface ipv4 set dnsserver "Local" static primary

    netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver "local" index=2

    Ip address is example.

    If this event is appears always when we dont have access to internet only or if is some problem with DNS configuration. 

    Thanks for response.
