Google docs you are offline ( ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) - FIXED

I came across above problem so I start digging for a solution. I narrowed it down to DNS within Google Chrome.

To fix the DNS problem follow the steps below;

  1. Check Chrome DNS by going to chrome://net-internals/#dns
  2. Check Async DNS Configuration, normally the Internal DNS client will be set to false.
  3. To enable this; go to chrome://flags/#enable-async-dns and enable the Built-in Asynchronous DNS.
  4. Restart Chrome and hola!!!
I hope this fix will work in most cases if not please comment.
