I had wondered about this error and troubleshot this for some time. I have tried to recycle my modems power, I have tried to communicate with my ISP (Cox Cable) to see if they have a ready made solution for this error. Non responsive. I have turned off the DNS for awhile (to originally see if my internet surfing speed would improve) and to see the effect of it on this error. Doing that was worse, in that more errors of the same 'istap.cox.net' and also 'us.McAfee's.com' servers.
I have not gotten a call back from the techs at cox and will try once again. Someone suggested that there might be a problem with my cable modem. I want to know for sure before addressing this "expense" option. It seems to perform just fine, now that I got most of my event errors dealt with ( I have one more actually)
This is a new install of Windows 7 Professional x64. During 2010, I have had bookoo problemos with both Hardware and Software (Windows 7 x64 mostly), the thing seems to be running okay so far. Not perfect, not real good, just okay. I am a tough customer you might say. For the price and effort I have made on this machine and repairs; I just want a decent but working/powerful computer.
So I am hopeful that this great community of wonderful "huged brained" individuals [I speak of intelligence, not a deformity] could once again come through for one knucklehead who used to think himself a power user. Now, I think I can really only consider myself "experienced." Here is the Event log for this problem.
Log Name: System
Date: 1/12/2011 4:13:32 PM
Event ID: 1014
User: NETWORK SERVICE
Name resolution for the name isatap.ph.cox.net timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
Please have a heart, I am broke and can't afford anymore hardware right now. Who can these days, for that matter?
