    Fresh Install Win10 "Name resolution for the name wpad timed out" DNS


    Hi!

    I just did a fresh install of windows 10 x 64. I remained in Build 1709. I did not format the HD, just fresh install. I have a brand new Router/Modem - AT&T Arris. I installed this myself, I installed similar hardware 5-10 times over my life, hooking up cables, I am good at it My download is 50Mbps and UP 6-7. I think I did ok installing.

    I am getting this problem in Event Viewer, "Name resolution for the name wpad timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded." This is a home PC, not connected to anything but the internet. It is hardwired. I am not a network admin - just a guy and his PC.

    I did the normal things SFC/Scan & Trouble shooter - no luck.... Do I just ignore it? I have a "Latency" issue with a game, could this be the cause?
    (Should I identify that PID/Process ID? How do I do that?)

    I never intentionally mean to be dumb. But should I make these changes in my router setup? I found instructions for changing this in router.

    I've made changes of this nature once in the last 10 yrs when I tried google DNS. I do not really understand it. Should I concern myself with this error? Or follow your advice and if it works better just move on.
