I changed my network to a static IP and this problem stopped. I had to 
reboot though? I'm going to test with DHCP and removing 
'domain-name-servers' from the line in my dhclient.conf.

request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
        domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name,
        netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope;
