Well, I could show you literally hundreds of these "Name resolution for the name *whatever* timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded." errors before I specified the DNS servers. Since then I have none.

I didn't change any router settings between the time I installed pre-7100 builds where I wasnt having this problem and post 7100 builds where I did. I'm wondering if something isn't broken in the way these windows 7 builds retrieve/address DHCP-specified DNS servers, because it turns out that specifying my ISP's DNS servers does fix it as well. (I don't need to use Level 3's, I just need to manually add the ones that should be added through DHCP).
