I was searching for a solution to a problem about a device that would not connect to my Windows 8.1 system when I came across this discussion.  I downloaded MiniToolBox and discovered some things that I don't understand.  I wondered if someone here who is smarter than I am could help me decipher this:

 

Why do I have two wireless LAN adaptor connections that are dead on my laptop?

Why are my DNS requests timing out?

Why do I have DNS logging errors?
