DNS reverse lookup problems...

recently, my sympatico ADSL stopped functioning correctly. Using the roaring penguin pppoe script 'adsl-connect' I can connect to the internet, showing me the list of remote IP address, local IP address, and the IP addresses of the 2 DNS servers for sympatico.

I can ping IP addresses successfully, but when I try to ping a domain, I get the error message " not found". When I attempt to connect to the internet through my windows partition, there is no problem, and this leads me to believe that the problem is with my linux settings, rather than with the sympatico dns servers. Where would I go to correct my linux configuration?

Excellent! It is working again!

One thing bothers me, though. Why would this have changed in the first place? I looked at pppoe.conf before running the "adsl-setup" script and there were no entries for the DNS servers in the file (even though they had been there before).
