networkmanager mods resolv.conf and slows down internet


So when I boot up, I find that networkmanager has modified my resolv.conf with some ip addresses.

This really slows down my internet at the start of a connection. If I delete these address from resolv.conf, the problem is solved.

I was hoping to find networkmanager's configuration file so I could tell it to not do this. But it does so each time I log in.

Does anybody know how I can stop it from modding resolv.conf?

Possibly edit you /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf file and add a line to prepend the dns server info. .

#send host-name "";
#send dhcp-client-identifier 1:0:a0:24:ab:fb:9c;
#send dhcp-lease-time 3600;
#supersede domain-name "";
prepend domain-name-servers;
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
	domain-name, domain-search, host-name,
	netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope, interface-mtu,
Basically you are telling the client to ignore the values offered by the DHCP server and use the value you specify instead.

Alternately you could fix the values handed out by your DHCP server.

I also prefer wicd over network-manager
