Maybe this will help

If you want to confirm that this is a DNS resolve problem rather than a routing problem, try doing this instead:

ryo-ohki:~ jenny$ dig ns.google.com @8.8.8.8
If you still get "connection timed out", then you do have a routing problem

Did you copy resolv.conf from your dig directory to your %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc directory? If not, that's your problem

Dig is probably blocked by firewall on the host computer.
