    Event ID 1014 DNS Client Events

    So I have noticed that when the October 2018 update happened I would get these randomly sometimes.

    Anyone else getting these warnings? I have my computer wired to an Orbi Satellite.

    Thing is that I wasn't getting these for a month till recently.

    According to Tom's Hardware (and my understanding of how DNS works) any time you ask DNS to look for a domain name that doesn't exist (might be a typo on a real domain or simply an invalid/non-existent domain name) this error gets thrown. Apparently it's not something to worry about. FWIW, the nslookup command confirms that the domain name shown in your example cannot be resolved:

    I sometimes have them, sometimes realteck drivers are a bit shaky and that can be a reason; if it happens to you tens (<- ? is it a way of saying it? ) of times a day you may have a faulty network cable, a couple of times a day can do no harm.


    (of course what Ed already explained can as well be the cause)

    Funny enough it happens when I launch a game like Overwatch and Hulu the Windows store version when it happens.
