Warning: failed to install socket filter: Protocol not available

When pinging an IP I get this:

Warning: failed to install socket filter: Protocol not available

This started happening last night along with intermittent DNS resolution. I contacted my ISP (Time Warner) and they said that there are no DNS problems in my area. Everything worked great the day before. What could this mean?
