DNS issues with R7900-v1.0.4.46 firmware

I just uploaded the latest firmware R7900-v1.0.4.46 and my PC no longer finds the DNS servers in the internet.  I can login to the router and local devices are connecting to it. It is not allowing any other internet connections to be made and I get DNS issue reported from Windows. See attach jpg

try downgrading a version. the latest rounds of updates caused issues with dns across multiple product lines 

I'd also recommend next time posting in the nighthawk forum and not the AX nighthawk forum.

Thanks. I figured that I would do that, I had to start up another router to figure out that it might be the latest firmware (which has never been a problem for me in over 10 years). I am so sorry that I did not put this in the other bin for forums, it is a Nighthawk Router with Wifi and I identified the model.
