Error 105 – How to Fix Error 105 In Google Chrome

 

Error 105 – A step by step guide to fix error 105 in Google Chrome

Error 105 is one of the most commonly faced errors by a lot of users everyday who are using Google chrome

So what is error 105?

Error 105 is  a DNS resolution error. – Which means when you enter the URL of the website and hit enter in Google chrome, it tries to resolve the IP address of the website using a protocol called DNS (Domain Name System). If chrome is unable to reach the DNS server, the name resolution fails and you get the error 105.

Or more precisely -

This webpage is not available The server at [xyz .com] can’t be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website’s name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.”
Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server’s DNS address.

Here is a screenshot of what you are probably seeing right now.

Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address

Solution:
Once you have verified from your internet service provider that there is no problem on their end, follow the step by step instructions below.
We are simply going to add a manual DNS address in Windows so that chrome is able to resolve DNS queries.

Error 138 Solution

1) Press [Windows Key + R] to open the “RUN Dialog”
Alternatively, you can also click on the start menu, type run in the search bar, and you will have the RUN Program.
Once you have the RUN box, type in ncpa.cpl and click OK – This would work for all Windows operating systems including Windows Xp, Vista and 7.

2) Next, Choose the correct network adapter (from the icons)
If you are connecting to the internet using an Ethernet cable, then most likely you are using a desktop computer. Right-Click “Local Area Connection” and click “Properties”

If you are connecting to the internet using a Wi-Fi Connection, then Right-Click on “Wireless Network Connection” and click properties

Step by step guide to fix error 138

3) After you open the properties window, select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and click “Properties”

Google Chrome error 138 Solution

4) Usually you would be having both the options set to “Automatic”
In the section below, select the “Use the following DNS Server Addresses” and enter the following values Preferred DNS Server – 8.8.4.4
Alternate DNS Server – 8.8.8.8
and click “OK”, then click “CLOSE”

At this point, you should be GOOD TO GO!

You must now test your new configuration by browsing a website – you can also try and browse the website you were trying to get to when you got the error 105 in Google chrome.

If you are still getting the error 105 message or are unable to browse the internet, please post your questions in the comment section below.

      omg! thank you so much, not tech savvy but have been searching the web to resolve this and your instructions were clear cut, to the point, and easy to understand and do! thanks again so much, I can get back to work now! *smiles*

      • Yusuf

        You’re very welcome!

        • John

          Hello Yusuf, I am having the same problem , but I can browse internet pages fine on internet explorer, some other programs like teamviewer , malware bytes can not update the program itself because it can not obtain an internet connection, same if I use dap. I have tried to repair winsock , did winsock reset . I have tried added the dns entries , I have checked the hosts file could not find anything in their. I am out of options now. I tried different programs spyware bot , hijack this to remove trojans but I cannot seem to find anything.

    • Izzy

      For some reason, Google isn’t working on my computer. I’ve tried everything. I’ve switched from internet explorer, to Firefox, to Chrome, and nothing seems to work. I tried this process, and still nothing… any suggestions? Bing just isn’t the same as google. I continue to recieve error 105 no matter what I do.

      • Yusuf

        Did you follow this guide correctly and set your DNS servers?
        If yes, post the contents of your “hosts file” here. Go to Start-> Run> c:WindowsSystem32driverstchosts [press enter] and open it with a notepad

    • http://www.facebook.com/tom.mclaughlin.564 Tom McLaughlin

      I have this problem as well, followed the guide, yet continue to get the Error 105 message. I tried visiting the “hosts file” using the steps you provided to Izzy, and this was the response: “c:WindowsSystem32driverstc refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.”

      Some more background. Our laptop running Windows 7 is connected to the Wi-Fi network at home (the modem is in the apartment below ours) and I’m accessing the Internet just fine – that’s how I’m writing to you now. Our desktop is running Windows XP, the Wireless Network Connection Status is: Connected, Signal Strength: low (2 of 5 bars showing, although it rises back and forth to 3).

      Thanks for any other suggestions you can offer.

      • Yusuf

        Hello Tom, the path you entered is incorrect. Here is the correct path without the quotes “c:WindowsSystem32driverstchosts”
        You missed the “/” after the “drivers”. And I guess you are accessing this website from your laptop? So it is safe to assume the problem is with your desktop then ?

        • http://www.facebook.com/tom.mclaughlin.564 Tom McLaughlin

          Hi Yusuf. Thanks for your quick reply. I am accessing your site from my laptop; the problem is indeed with the desktop. As for the path, the response I quoted above came after typing exactly what you wrote, including the hosts. I don’t know why the error message came back without that part. However, I noticed when I was typing that path into the Run box that the PC did recognize the path up to and including System32; I know this because it showed up below the field as I was typing, so I could have selected it rather than type it completely on my own. However, when I typed hosts, it did not recognize it. Hmmm. Perhaps that suggests that I’ve typed that path before, but never that string with hosts. Anyway, I wanted to give you this bit of info, too, in case it sheds any light.

          I look forward to your next response!

          Tom

    • tzl

      Still didn’t work on Windows 7. I even circumvented my wireless and plug directly to a cable modem. Changing to 8.8.4.4.and 8.8.8.8 prevents me from browsing any web and upon resetting to “automatic DNS” I have to reboot my modem to get browsing to work. But still have the problem with some sites…

    • phil

      To all ppl that this solution didn’t work. Had this problem myself. Cause: IP conflict on your LAN. Set IP address manually to a known free IP address
      i.e
      192.168.0.150 (most likely to be free)
      255.255.255.0
      192.168.0.1

      DNS
      192.168.0.1
      192.168.0.2

      Oh my GOD!!!
      I have been struggling with this since months!
      Most sites were inaccessible including the JWPlayer website which meant that any online video stream service which used JWPlayer (which is almost all of them) wouldn’t be able to connect with the player.
      I tried everything from changing browsers to reinstalling and updating flash, shockwave, and other plugins… nothing seemed to work!
      Until I stumbled upon this post! And I wasn’t even looking for it!!!
      All I had to do was to change the DNS and everything worked like a charm.
      Thanks mate. If I ever meet you in a bar, I’ll buy you a couple of beer.
      Cheers!

      Hello, everyone,
      so, I had the same problem few days ago. I have this problem in just one website. So I have tried a lot of things to fix it and any of it didnt worked. But the thing I noticed was that I am able to reach the web-site using my mobile connection and it works fine. After that I have tried to load the same web-site using my lap-top and my Wi-Fi signal and it faild. Same things happen when I trid using my Personal Computer and the funny part was that when I conncect to the Wi-Fi signal trough my phone it I wasn unable to lead the site again. So I wander do you have some other rabbits in your hat for me ? :) Thank you, no matter the answer !
