    As you don't tell us what you did and what happens, e.g. the exact error message, we can only guess.

    Did you start the command prompt (cmd.exe) in elevated mode to execute "ipconfig /flushdns"?
    Do you run the "DNS Client" service at all? If not, you don't have a local resolver cache.

    I have a 2 wire router. I put it on manual DNS configuration. I entered the two numbers and hit save. I then went to run cmd and hit enter. It said C:\Users\Name. I hit ipconfig/flushdns and this is what it said..

    Could not flush the DNS Resolver Cache: Function failed during execution

    That most likely means that your do not have the DNS Client service running, so there is no cache to flush.

    Go ahead and check: type
    services.msc
    in the run box, hit enter, and check whether the service is running. It does not have to be running, and if it is not, you never have to flush the local resolver cache because there exists none to flush.
