DNS Issues With Machines

Last Modified: 2017-04-12

I work in a public school district in which students have Lenovo laptops that travel from home to school.  For some reason when students take these laptops home, then bring them back to their school they can't get connected and have to run ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns to get reconnected through an admin account of which they don't have as students and have to bring the laptop to an administrator.  Is this a DNS caching issue?  If so, can caching be turned off?
