http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I am using Ubuntu 9.04 (x86-64). My internet connection is not working, i've tried to fix it and the issue seems to be with DNS. I can ping google's IP, but i can ping it URL. I have used the GUI network manager(from Gnome's equivalent of the Windows system tray), to add the DNS IP addresses to the IPv4 wired connection - that hasn't helped. I have checked Code: /etc/resolv.conf and the IP addresses show up there. Code: # Generated by NetworkManager nameserver 208.67.222.222 nameserver 208.67.220.220 I have also checked Code: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf for Code: prepend domain-name-servers 192.168.1.1,208.67.222.222,208.67.220.220; IP address assignment is via DHCP, i need to "force" the DNS Server IP addresses on the ethernet connection. How can this be done? thanks :) (HowTos)
