  2. Be it DNS Probe Failed Bad Config or any other error, I have a standard response to any bad internet prompt. I knock at the router, press in the wires, clear my history, restart my PC and/or try using a different web browser. I’ll add toggling network connections to the list, thanks to this site I found.
