Having a continuing issue where DNS information is changed on the internet, but the old information is retained in the local Verizon Router. If I navigate to a URL on another device not on the network (ie: Cell Phone on Cell Service) it correctly uses the updated DNS information. Do the same on a local device connected to the Verizon Router, and it routes using old DNS data.
How do I flush the local routers DNS cached data so that it is forced to obtain the latest DNS information found on the internet?
Even if you reconfigure the DNS or power cycle, it will still retain the DNS, proxy settings, and VPN. You have a few options:
#1 Log into the router and release/renew the DHCP.
#2 *Risks!* Factory reset the device. This will remove all settings. If your device isn’t plug and play then you need to know your network information otherwise you will lose internet access. In most case, the router will pull the network info from the ONT, but not always. You’ll need to check your documentation
There can be an issue where you clear the router cache and the computer(s) retain the previous settings! This is the procedure to use:
shutdown /s /t 10).
