Hello, I have a problem with my resolv.conf file. The dns address 192.168.8.1 keeps popping up in there on the first line. That address works when im using windows but not linux that I dont care about. The problem is when I delete 192.168.8.1 on the first line then save with wq and exit it goes away for a little while. Then comes back Ive tried deleting it then changing the permissions so it cant be written to. That does not work it comes back it probobly came back while I was writing this message. What I need to know is how to get 192.168.8.1 out of my resolv.conf file and keep it gone for good. I know what dns servers I want to use and I have put them in manually but then they change right back to 192.168.8.1. I would accept this however my pages take about 4 minutes to load and im on a T1 line this annoys the living hell out of me. Everything else with this linux box is great way better then windows but simple crap like this is horrible plus theres no reason for it. Please help me and thank you in advance
