Windows 7: 'Windows can't communicate with the device or resource'

'Windows can't communicate with the device or resource'

Been having this occur pretty often recently. I'll just be minding my own business browsing the web or playing an online game and all of a sudden my internet would stop working.

I run the 'Troubleshoot problems' and this is the information it keeps giving me.




Looking for a fix to prevent it happening again.

Cheers.

What do those point to? I've been using Google Public DNS.

And the connection is wired, Ethernet.

Now I'm getting 'The DNS server isn't responding' from the troubleshooting.
