I got the last time regularly a notification that the DNS server changes twice. One time from IPv4 to IPv6 and then back from IPv6 to IPv4. I found out that the IP of my own PC is changing at that time. Is it possible that GlassWire is causing this problem, or would there be a problem with my router?
Now I have set a static IP on my own system and added OpenDNS IP addresses to my pc and it is working fine until now…
Thank you for your answer. I did look to a few other topics, but the strange thing is that when I disabled IPv6 on my system, I still got these error. My thoughts were that if I disable IPv6 he shouldn’t change the DNS address.
I didn’t try it with GlassWire deinstalled, so I could try that next.
You can disable it on your network adapter, what you can find in the Network and Sharing Centre of Windows. You can uncheck the box by Internet Protocol Version 6. That should unable IPv6 from running.
With my ISP my DNS servers change occasionally also, so this is normal. If you use something like OpenDNS DNS servers it’s useful to see if your DNS changes. Also some malware and some toolbars will change your operating system DNS on you unfortunately, so that’s the main reason we created this feature.
When we came up with this idea though we didn’t expect the ISP to make DNS changes so often.
@ButerBreaGrieneTsiis Did you try rebooting your modem, then your router?
If you think it’s something with the DNS server I guess you could try OpenDNS servers or GoogleDNS servers instead with your router or PC, but it sounds more like you’re having ISP problems.
