"Name Resolution Timed Out."

#1
I'm getting this error in my event log every so often as my network connection crashes.

Name resolution for the name <www.XXX.com> timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

I have to reset my network card (disable and then enable in Device Manager) in order to get a connection back. I have seen this issue in relation to Windows 7 on at least a dozen different forums now, and no one has a solution, which is ridiculous. It has nothing to do with our computers, everyone posting it has different network cards. It is obviously a Windows 7 issue.

- Someone suggested it was the Bonjour service for iTunes, this turned out not to be true.
- It only happens under heavier traffic, like when loading a lot of images or a YouTube video.
- The times it happens are completely random--I've gone without the issue for weeks, and it just started up again.

Has anyone had this problem and figured out how to stop their network connections from being randomly dropped?
