How to flush the DNS Resolver Cache

  Newuser1314 16:50 19 Aug 05

From the Command Prompt, I am trying to flush the DNS Resolver Cache, but all I get is a message "Function failed during execution" I am using Windows XP Pro. An inability to flush the cache seems to have arisen following my installing a Netgear wireless router, and a DLinl ADSL router. Another computer on my network has not problems with its DNS cache.

The Microsoft Knowledge Base does not seem to have any relevant answers.

Help, please, someone!

I am afraid that Joe's response does not address the problem! As I wrote initially, the Ipconfig commands do not clear the cache. How can I do this?

It's probably too obvious so sorry if it is, but go to Start, Run, and type in services.msc to make sure the DNS Client service is running.

Many thanks - it may have been obvious to you - but it was new territory for me! I am not yet out of the woods with my network, but at least I am one step nearer the daylight.
