Event Log warning
Apr 26, 2013

I am getting this error regularly:

Name resolution for the name wpad.gateway.2wire.net timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

Can someone advise?

If you do a Google search for:

wpad.gateway.2wire.net timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded

you will find many people have or had the same problem.

Something didn't work right.  My comment was missing:

wpad.gateway.2wire.net timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded

If you search on the above line of text, you will find many people have or had the same problem.

Click "show signature"
In reply to digitalshooter, Apr 26, 2013

The response was in the signature section of the post.  If you click on "show signature", you can see it.

Anytime the forums see two dashes in a row, it automatically assumes that's the start of the signature section of the post.  Note how your signature looks when making a post and you'll see them.

So, make sure to click on "show signature" to make sure you see all of a post here (and avoid the use of consecutive dashes in your posts if you don't want for them to cause that kind of issue with posts here, where the forums software assumes they're being used to start the signature section of a post).

There's nothing to advise - the dns servers can't find a matching IP address for that name.

It usually means that the site is gone from the web, either killed off by it owners or their host, or is just temporarily dead (bad server or host doing upgrades).

If it's important, try again each day.. If it's temp it'll be back.

OH!!

I see now - you don't go there but still found that in your log? (you didn't make that clear)

In that case I'd suggest that it's just an internal connection (in a web page).

You may have gone somewhere that refers on a cookie to that page, the way that google does with various thing, facebook does with others, ad servers, etc.

Even porno sites refer on to ad servers and even google.. My favourite one tries to refer to a few advert sites (host file blocked though, hehehe)

If you are worried, download malwarebytes antimalware and run it (just run it as a freewaare user, trial version, it'll still tell you if you have "caught something" - I DOUBT you have, but better to be safe).

Run it, scan, then see if it detects anything, then uninstall it.

I thinks it's just referrer stuff, but you never know.

update with more information
In reply to digitalshooter, Apr 29, 2013

I get these errors when my IE hangs waiting for a response from the server.  In other words, if I go to a website, sometimes it appears without issue.  Other times I get a delay and a message that says waiting for a response from ..............

Those two are image hosts, the first is probably for the little icons for talky box and such, maybe some camera pictures, etc.

Maybe the server is having troubles, disabled, or just plain overloaded and not responding.

I'd say the second is a similar thing, just a plain ordinary hosy for images of some sort - and not responding to a request.

The lock-up thing you can't do too much about (My Opera does the same thing, calls for something and waits for a response, and waits..).

There might be a way to reduce the time it waits for a no-response signal, but I don't know where that would be, sorry.

Goole might help though.
