It has not been overwritten. And, well that is the DNS I used to use in Windows. What DNS should I use then?...

Ckech your setup on the windows boxes. Thing might have changed.
Also, where are the windows boxes getting their DNS information from?
- 11-16-2007 #13
They get it from the DHCP.
The DHCP box is 192.168.1.254
and the only box in the network that might be possible to give DNS is 192.168.1.254
The boxes on the network are:
- 192.168.1.71 WinXPPro
- 192.168.1.72 WinVista
- 192.168.1.73 WinXPHome
- 192.168.1.74 WinXPPro
- 192.168.1.200 Debian linux/WinXPPro (Me)
- 192.168.1.254 Wifi-Box I got from the Company who gives me Inet (Accessible by telnet or webbrowser)
If I do tracert when I run on Windows to google. I get as first hop 192.168.1.254 so I am connect to that.
well, is this fixable?

My response would be 'yes'. It's just a matter of figuring out where the problem is and attacking it from that angle.
Here are some things to do;
1. post your resolve.conf file
2. access the wifi-box and pull out the configuration for dhcp and post it.
Remove anything that you think might be information you don't want on the forum/internet but leave enough information so that we have a good picture of the configs.
If you are not comfortable with this then just PM me the information.

Well, my conf file is:
# generated by NetworkManager, do not edit! nameserver 192.168.1.254
When I access my router with telnet In get this:
Username : Password : Invalid username/password. Closing connection Connection to host lost.
When I do ipconfig /all (ifconfig -a) in Windows I get:
Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Belkin 802.11g Network Adapter Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-11-50-ED-70-B7 Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.100 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254 DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254

I hope they work.
But still that shouldn't me right.. :/
Ok, you wont believe this.
I logged in as root.
I changed the /dev/resolv.conf file to:
I saved the file.
I changed the rights with the command chmod -w
I checked ls -al /etc/resolv.conf
Id said only read.
Well, I reboot to check my config.
Is the file back to the one it was before..
- 11-17-2007 #16
OK, some things I see from the start.
1. Windows is not using DHCP
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
Primairy DNS: 184.108.40.206
Secondary DNS: 220.127.116.11
4. What type of router is this?
- 11-17-2007 #17
All the other pcs do use DHCP
Is Telnet. The problem is then. I dont have a password. And the Company who installed it doesn't have a password either. (I should have just installed it myself. The problem now is I cant Reinstall it since our phone network has been integrated in it. And if I reinstall it our Account becomes invalid.)
Since its by the company it self. A dutch one..
Its a "KPN-Experia Box" (Or something like that)
but it uses the software and hardware of a THOMSON SpeedTouch 780
its a bit modded but it should work the same..

OK, since you really don't have full control over this router I would suggest that you turn off DHCP on this box and then install DHPC on a box you have control over.
