Finally, all the cache and cookies will be removed.                                                                                                                           Browsing Data                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
     By Using Command Prompt 

In this method, we will use Command Prompt to renew the IP settings and to adjust the DNS  settings. Let’s see how.

  • Go to Start menu and type “cmd” in the search box and then press Enter. The Command Prompt window will be opened.
  • Here type the code: netsh winsock reset and press Enter.                                                        cmd
  • If the problem is solved already, then well and good. But if not, then you’ll have to take the pain of typing some more codes. Don’t forget to press Enter after each line. The codes are:

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

now just reboot your PC, and expectantly the issue is resolved.

By Changing DNS Settings

This is another method which could give you fruitful results. Let’s see how this method can help you to overcome the Err_Connection_Closed error.
