    DNS not working and fixed it

    Hi I had this problem before, and being the idiot I was, just backed up my files like on USB thumb drive and Google drive and reinstalled 14.04 Trusty. But I didn't give up so easily this time.

    Everytime I upgrade to 14.10 Utopic (Mr. Shuttleworth really comes up with cute names !) DNS doesn't work.

    I know my other computer a Windows Vista aroudn 5+ years old and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 running Android as well as my cell phone, Saumsung S4 both worked fine with my ISP Rogers cable in Ontario, Canada both last time andd this. So I decided to use OpenDNS. Well to set it up I followed this link http://askubuntu.com/questions/2321/...nge-the-dns-ip
    and using the last advice with 3 votes
    sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head of course you can use gedit
    but ...

    The best way to set a nameserver via the CLI, without NetworkManger, with a static address, or independent of the connection is this:

    Code:
    Install the resolvconf package.
    Run
    sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head
    (ignore the scary warning. /etc/resolv.conf is autogenerated, so the warning is there so it will get put in /etc/resolv.conf when /etc/resolv.conf is generated.) To the end of the file, add
     nameserver <ip_of_nameserver>
    Press Ctrl x and answer yes to saving the file. To finish up, regenerate /etc/resolv.conf so the changes are applied right now:
     sudo resolvconf -u

    and it worked changing nameserver to 220.... in regards to Google DNSserver 8.8.8.8. as on my personal experience, I had a Nuance recruiter contact me, I don't trust Google and their chief of engineering Ray Kurzweil (who owns Nuance) who I think does read e-mail (I use GMail) probably with an AI assistant, hey it is Kurzweil who I consider Rudolph Steiner accurately predicted as Ahriman in 2000 A.D., so prefer not to have Google know even more of my Internet usage by using it's DNS.

    So there is some bug in Ubuntu 14.10 which doesn't get the name server right. I am not an expert on DNS and I doubt even the great god of the Internet for Google Vint Cerf knows it, I suggest someone at Canonical and whoever is development team have a look at it. I am too lazy and just not willing to report a bug report as I find it annoying, I get bombarded with all updates on my e-mail account regarding the bug report.

    Regards,

    Is this bug fixed yet or still an issue?

    Re: after update - blows out network.

    I posted this earlier in the thread and still have to use it. Whien logging in choose the rescue mode and then select start networking after this resume and I have network. My situation may be a bit different than most as I use an ethernet connection to my DSL box. Maybe ethernet has something to do with this problem. I have been updateing every day and still it is not fixed for my situation.

    The one install works just fine after updates. I am going to mark it solved for now .. but it may rear up later in the cycle, so I'll keep an eye on it.

    I had a strange thing happen this morning, I connected without thinking about it, but on checking top a bit later, I saw that dnsmasq was pegged at 100% cpu usage, killing it seem to make my connection a bit faster.
