Somehow I've clobbered my whole DNS system in 16.04.
I now must edit
/run/resolvconf/resolv.conf to add a name server such as
18.104.22.168 or similar.
Of course, this always disappears after a reboot.
(And, yes, I KNOW I'm not supposed to hack it this way!)
NOTE: I'm accessing the router through wifi, not Ethernet.
I have tried editing
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf - it currently shows
[main] plugins=ifupdown,keyfile,ofono dns=dnsmasq [ifupdown] managed=false
I've tried commenting out the
dns= line but still the problem persists.
I have tried edited the ipv4 params in the wifi-settings, attempting to use either static or auto - but it's still no go after a reboot.
Currently my `/etc/network/interfaces shows
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8) auto lo iface lo inet loopback address 192.168.200.44 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.200.1 dns-nameservers 22.214.171.124**
I added the IP-data lines there as a last resort. Presumably, they mean nothing if I have used "loopback" instead of "static", right?
Ideally, I'd like to use DHCP instead of a static, but use my own nameservers such as google or OpenDNS.
So where can I look to see what the problem with BOTH my DNS and Static is?
