Problem with DNS

I just installed 11.1 on a Dell Inspiron E1705. For the most part it runs well with the exception of NetworkManager. But then, that never worked for me in any other version either so I’m not concerned.

What I am concerned about though, is that each time I reboot I have to change the DNS setting for the network device. If I add the DNS server IP during one session, I have to go in and remove it during the next.

I’ve never seen this happen before so I don’t know what to look at.

How is your DNS setting being set? If it’s manual (static IP) then I
would be surprised to see it go and not return on a reboot but if it’s
dynamic I’d check your DHCP settings. I don’t see this in my setup at
hom or work (dynamic in both cases).

Good luck.

The adapter is configured for DHCP but I’ve had to manually add the DNS IP (and again, remove it upon reboot)

Is your DHCP server configured to dish out a DNS server’s IP address?
Do other machines using DHCP on the network work after a reboot? Does
your machine work elsewhere?

Good luck.

Five other systems have not had problems; two XP laptops, a tower running 10.3 with a Linksys wireless card, a Mac, and the Vista install I’m dual booting this laptop with.
