In the meantime, you could try disabling
Use Secure DNS in
brave://settings/security if it is enabled and see if that resolves your issue.

I’m also experiencing the same issues. Did the DNS thing, and it worked for like 2 mins, then I’m back to the same error. I’ve been following this thread, but honestly get confused with the words - I really dont know much about computers lol

when i try the ipconfig/flushdns
Yes it is a nightmare and I am fairly IT proficient, tried everything I know read various threads too. I think some update has caused this, as it has been fine for a year or two then suddenly we have this. What mkes it strange is other browsers are fine including Chrome which I think Brave uses!

Another source for DNS troubleshooting.
Click on run/search, type “cmd”, right click "Run as admin"
Then run the following in the black window:
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
In the new Brave tab,
type in Brave://net-internals/#dns and press “Enter”
Click on the Clear Host Cache button to clear this cache.
Open Control Panel
Locate and double click Internet Options icon
Click Content Tab
Clear SSL State.

@MARIAA You are using RUN; you should be using Command Prompt to flush DNS.
For this, open Windows Search, enter “command prompt” then follow the steps as in image below.
Hi Finally success, although I am not sure if all the cmd actions fixed it, for a second it worked then stopped again.
In the end, it looked like I had two antivirus applications that may have been the issue, I deleted AVG antivirus and rebooted and it worked perfectly.
I hope this helps others, rather painful trying to solve but got there in the end
Thank for all the help
