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.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. 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.

Host Name / IP address / MAC address / expired time
Kazikan 192.168.0.102 blah blah blah blah blah
unknown 192.168.0.101 blah blah blah blah blah
The computer in question, has an unknown host name. I tested this by reseting the router, and when the conection came back up, i saw TWO unknowns, as soon as i did something on my laptop with the internet, the Kazikan (my laptop) name came back up. Where the other unknown wouldn't budge.
No, the page you listed is only about your internal network. It only shows that both computers are known to the router. The IP has to be something other than 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x that can only be used in a local network.
Crazy. I think it's the way your router works -- then your automatically retrieved resolv.conf would have been right. And you are sure that with this setting you cannot surf any web site? IMHO this is more a problem with your router now if 192.168.0.1 is the dns server your windows box is using...
Hold to your router. I bet there is somewhere in its web frontend a page where you can see the dns nameservers it is using.
That you can see your local network is good. But the dsn resolving is the way to get you outside. Try to surf to 184.108.40.206 -- you will probably see www.google.com. The problem is probably just the name resolving.
