Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a wifi router and an extra computer shares a connection with my wifi capable computer.
So in drawing:
Router --WiFi --> Comp A --Crossover--> Comp B
Only problem is Comp B has no DNS :/
My ISP's DNS servers are dynamically assigned, and Comp A looks to my router for DNS resolution. I pointed Comp B to the router, but it doesn't work. I pointed Comp B to Comp A (all devices tried); doesn't work... Comp B can ping Internet IP's though, and can ping any machine on my network... so I'm wondering if there's something extra I need to do with the routing tables, IP masquerading (I can't think of why though) to get my DNS to work... here are some IP's for reference...
what is wrong with just copying /etc/resolv.conf from comp A to comp B? It doesn't work? Are you sure the router(192.168.0.1) working as a dns server? Then you have some routing problem with your udp packages.
