Your requested host "xxxxxxxxxx.com" could not be resolved by DNS.

If it is happening to all three..... I would point the blame on teh linksys router...

Upgrade it to the latest firmware. Might even set the logging to enabled, and see if you can tell if the router is having a problem.

When this happens, can you ping the other 2 machines ok from a bad one?

Also, look at the lights on the router when this happens.....Are they all good?

Are you using DNS servers provided by the ISP? IT may be the servers are slow or misconfigured. Try using OpenDNS (opendns.org), it's free and generally reliable.

My thoughts were in the router, after which lead me to the Wild Blue modem, then onto Wild Blue themselves. Turned out Wild Blue capped my bandwidth. They told me that I should of know that. I told them it was the first I heard of it. So I cancelled and use a T1. No problems. Thanks for your help.
