DNS configuration: How 2 change from local to remote nameservers
I am running Fedora Core 3 connected to the internet via an ADSL router (Brand: Sweex, router login webpage says Conexant - Hasbani). It is configured to provide "DNS Proxy", and for "Primary" and "Alternate" DNS nameservers I have entered IP numbers of two DNS servers at my ISP.
Up to now, I have supplied the IP number of the router as the primary nameserver on the DNS page of Network Setup in my Fedora system. However, the router's DNS proxy service generates frequent temporary errors messages ("domain cannot be resolved"), and crashes every few days requiring me to manually reboot the router. Hence, I would like to configure Fedora to use the nameservers of my ISP directly. I have tried entering the same ISP DNS server the router uses as the primary nameserver on the DNS page, then deactivating and reactivating the connection, but then DNS lookups don't work at all, and I have to restore the router IP. Obviously something else needs to be changed, but what?
