I'm wondering if I can get some help with OpenDNS here. Nothing I do seems to be able to get opendns servers to stick in resolv.conf. I use a Huawei E169 modem with Virgin.
So far Ive tried the following:
-The obvious: The PCC control center, that doesn't work.
From Google and a search of the forum, I've also tried the following:
-Changed the /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base file
-Commented out usepeerdns in everything I could find with respect to ppp0 and wvdial file in /etc/ppp/peers/options file in /etc/ppp/ etc.
PEERDNS=no in my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcg-ppp0 file and in the /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf file.
Nothing seems to work. Its bizarre.
My specific question, if anyone knows, is: What files does the PCC control center modify when a 3g/gprs interface is created? Its clear to me that some sort of hard coded configuration is overwriting any attempt to set different dns servers, but I'm stumped as to which ones.
This is really bugging me. I have two laptops, a work Thinkpad and my Del. On the thinkpad, changing to opendns made a spectacular difference. Instead of waiting for upto 90 sec (I'm not kidding) for a webpage to load, it does it properly. Changing back to Virgins dns servers immediately gave me the same "waiting" problem. I tried this repeatedly. Virgins dns servers here in Oz, anyway, suck bigtime.
I want to do the same on the del. But how?
ps: I'm running the latest KDE/PCLOS fully updated.
Any help would be appreciated.
