Cable Modem -> onbord nic no routers just running windows firewall and MSE now and then every thing goes dead and diagnostics said "DNS server not responding" this is rather annoying as i have to restart my cable modem from the web interface wait 10 seconds or so and the internet is back to normal here are some ipconfig details that might help.

Remove Bonjour from your system the proper way, if you have that. Check task manager for mdnsresponder.exe is easy way to tell. Also in services.msc for Bonjour or a line at top with random nummers/letters.

Now that is apple software that comes with itunes if I'm not mistaken correct? I have no itunes or need for that software I use wmp so the question still remains what can be causing this error from time to time? The only other thing I run is Utorrent could that be a cause maybe?

No error, just experience.

You could try disabling DNS Client service.

services.msc in start menu search box. Hit enter.

I had the same problem as Archangel83. I did a 2nd Windows Critical Update last night and it seems to be working now and connecting ok.

I will check again tonight.

Has anyone else had this 2nd Critical update??
