Unless you remember configuring a static IP for your computer, you are probably getting your IP address via DHCP. Since you say that, before, you were able to connect your computer via LAN cable without any additional IP configuration also suggests that you are probably using DHCP.

Hey @hkuchampudi thank you for your patience that really fixed my issue! :) Feeling dumb right now for not having my system properly set-up. Thank you very much!
I don't believe that I have ever recommended users to use any specific DNS resolution service. In the above case, that was what the user was already using on their system. Users should be aware of the limitations and issues affecting the services on their systems and make their own decisions based on that.
That being said, the warning you cited does not apply in this case. To my knowledge, Windscribe does not provide a DNS server that utilizes DNS over TLS. The client application (which uses OpenVPN) mitigates against MitM attacks by using embedded certs and credentials in the configuration file to verify that the user is actually connecting to a legitimate Windscribe server; otherwise the connection would fail. Once connected, traffic moves through the encrypted tunnel established by OpenVPN.
If you have any follow-up concerns, please open a new issue. Thanks!
