No, they are not the right ones.

Start a MSDOS shell. Type "ipconfig /all". There you should see the DNS servers.

So under my router's DHCP page it has.

Dynamic DHCP client List

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.

Actually i was one step ahead of you on that one. I tried the MSDOS shell, (I read that whole link you sent me and tried finding the DNS servers off my laptops conection) I came up with

Code:
Default gate way.......192.168.0.1
DHCP server...........192.168.0.1
DNS servers ...........192.168.0.1

can you believe that??....It seems like it should be working...maybe we're over looking something simple??

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 209.85.135.103 -- you will probably see www.google.com. The problem is probably just the name resolving.

BINGO! Put them in resolv.conf. Maybe restart rc.inet1 and rc.inet2, maybe it even works without this step.

# Generated by lypur for interface eth0
search ca.shawcable.net
nameserver 64.59.168.13
nameserver 64.59.168.15

if you still get no connection try to change ca.shawcable.net to another name, maybe "iwantnetnow".

You could do that. Although restarting rc.inet1 and rc.inet2 should be enough.
