When using Google Chrome, if you can’t connect to the internet and get error message “server DNS address could not be found“, don’t worry. You can have the problem fixed by using the methods here.
All these methods have worked for some other Chrome users who had this error like you. Hope they work for you too.
This is a simple fix. Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc then delete all the files there.
The problem can cause if there is too much cache. Try to clear the DNS cache:
1) On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Shift+n to open the incognito window. Try to open a site in incognito mode. If the site can be opened, it is possible there is an extension problem of the source.
2) Type chrome://net-internals/#dns in the address bar then click the Clear host cache button.
3) Open Command Prompt as Administrator.
4) Type ipconfig /flushdns then press Enter on your keyboard.
5) Check to see if the problem is resolved.
Incorrect DNS server settings can also cause this problem. Follow steps below to check and configure the DNS server settings.

4) Right-click on the connection icon (Local Area Connection or Wireless Network Connection, in my case, I right-click on Local Area Connection). Then click Properties.
5) Highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP /IPv4) then click Properties.
6) In General tab, select Obtain DNS server address automatically. Then click OK.
If “Obtain DNS servers address automatically” has already been selected, select Use the following DNS server address instead. Then enter the following server address. After that, click the OK button.
