    Can you provide more information for this?

    What DNS Servers are you using?

    Are you using DHCP or a static IP address?

    Please can you open CMD and give us an ipconfig /all.

    Can you also confirm that you can ping (Googles DNS Server IP) to verify your internet connection.

    Problem solved. McAfee antivirus was the problem.

    Removed McAfee and DNS worked. Maybe it was damaged. Installed another anti-virus software and unit works fine.
