Specifying DNS servers in Fedora?


Hi Guys,

I finally got my wireless card working in FC6, I can get it to connect to my network but can only browse the net by using ip's. Where can I specify my DNS servers??

Thanks

Are you sure your router provides DNS services? Many do not. If not, you need to specify your ISP's DNS servers, or use the OpenDNS servers:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

Detailed instructions here.

Thanks, I put those in my resolv.conf and it's working great. I have suse running my laptop and my router defined as the nameserver and it works perfectly so I don't quite understand why it doesn't on Fedora...
