BT Broadband DNS Nameserver


I've set up my SuSE box and connected it to my BT Voyager 200 router, which is fine and dandy, but I need a nameserver address for BT in order to get online as far as I know - I'm a newbie, but this is what I've been told. I can't find this information anywhere on the BT website and I don't want to get redirected to India if I call tech support.

Anyone able to offer any suggestions? My router pics up the Linux box fine. I can see it on the control panel of my Windows box.

You should have received a letter with the IP addresses you need - the router IP is also the DNS IP (at least it is on the one I am using at work).

If you set your linux box to get an ip address using dhcp most routers will automatically pass on the nameserver addressess.

>the router IP is also the DNS IP
Not all routers do that.

To get the namserver addresses call your ISP's helpline, look at their webpages.
