Its rolling back to the old settings b'coz there is some script which runs when you reboot the system and its this script who's changing the settings there in /etc/resolv.conf.
How do you initiate the internet connection ??? B'coz this script is somewhere there only.
e.g i connect using #pppoe-start.
/etc/ppp/pppoe.conf has the default settings which comes up whenever i boot my system
a part of my /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf
# Obtain DNS server addresses from the peer (recent versions of pppd only)
# In old config files, this used to be called USEPEERDNS. Changed to
# PEERDNS for better Red Hat compatibility
so look out for something like this, change it. Or re-run the setup for the internet connection.
