Address not found, bla,bla,bla, Try again.
What the hell is going on, yesterday I was connected to the world, today nothing goes!
I have to have a look again at Paul's post about the DNS problem:
It might be worth your while to try something like the OpenDNS - DNS ips are as follows:
Unfortunately I have absolutely no idea what this means. I hope Paul comes back to this thread once more, to give me a hand what exactly I would have to do.
Thanks Paul, in advance...............
The two DNS entries need to be added to /etc/resolv.conf, in the form below:
The only problem I can see with that is that some systems seem to rewrite /etc/resolv.conf on every boot, and it looks as though Vector does that. There is a switch to the DHCP client to prevent that. I've found the call to dhcpcd in /etc/rc.d/functions-network, but I'm not expert enough with Vector to know if that is where it should be edited. If it is, adding -r to the lines where dhcpcd is called should do it.
Hopefully someone who knows a bit more about the inner workings of Vector can tell you if that is the place to set it so it does not overwrite /etc/resolv.conf every time the system boots.
