sounds like the /etc/resolv.conf is getting overwritten by a dhcp client...

if so, you'd need to find the startup script for the dhcp client and then modify the command(s) so as that /etc/resolv.conf isn't overwritten...

BTW, if you are using dhcpcd, then the option you wanna add is -R... from man dhcpcd:

Prevents dhcpcd from replacing existing /etc/resolv.conf file.
just my ...

PS: remember to change the perm back to 644...

To avoid that any other program (ie pppd) touches /etc/resolv.conf you could do:
chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf
