Windows 2012 server environment.  Windows 10 Pro client.  

Had a user that could not get on the internet so I went to command line and did ipconfig /all and noticed that the DNS server was 192.168.1.1  The settings for this computer were obtain ip and Dns auto.  I changed it to 8.8.8.8 and all is well.  I will change back to auto later and see what happens.  Any reason how this could have been changed when it was set to auto?  

NOTE: When I looked at ipv4 in the LAN properties both the ip address and DNS WERE set to auto.
