http://ubuntuforums.org – Trying to post again....last time the post failed after a page long description Network manager was getting on my nerves with either constantly connecting to a network or asking me to do so. I dont want to have to disable my wireless (i use 2 adapters) just to get it to shut up. So I decided to use WICD. I installed WICD and then later removed NM. Now i can connect wired or wireless and ping any valid ip (including the google dns servers I use) but no matter what dns I try to use with wicd or even letting dhcp auto configure it, I cannot get the machine to resolve hostnames. nslookup fa (Hardware)
