In my setup Internet connections are sometimes apparently slow and
sometimes fail DNS lookup. The problem turned out to be because the
default /etc/resolv.conf used the ADSL Modem/Router as the
DNS (and this file was updated automatically at around 9:30am each day
Changing it back to:
fixes the DNS problems. The router seems to correctly identify the
DNS itself (188.8.131.52) but somewhere things don't work. This is
overridden in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf by adding the two lines:
send host-name "athene.togaware.com";
supersede domain-name-servers 184.108.40.206;
Perhaps the router is smart enough to do local DNS with athens mapped
appropriately? If so, then don't need the static (but possibly
changing) entries in /etc/hosts.
