if you have dns issues


Recommended Posts

if you can ping 66.249.87.99 but cannot ping www.google.com then chances are you have DNS issues (cannot resolve hostnames)

 

to fix, try manually editing /etc/resolv.conf and input your nameservers in there

 

heres a sample

 

; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script

nameserver 192.168.0.1

 

of course, in my case, 192.168.0.1 is my nat/firewall box, but you can point that ip to your ISP's nameservers

 

changes to resolv.conf take place immediatly so no need to restart networking...

 

cheers
