Some people in the /r/AppleHelp Subreddit have complained about issues with their Apple AirPort Station including errors including ‘No DNS Servers and ‘Internet connection”. Issues include the Apple AirPort’s status lights changing from green to yellow once or twice a day while constantly dropping the signal or providing no internet connection at all. This issue is caused by the ISP’s DHCP server not properly responding and the only fix is to set the DNS of your Apple Airport manually.
The easy fix for this would be overwriting your DNS servers to Googles Universal DNS Servers 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
To do so follow this simple to follow Tutorial:
