I get intermittent DNS issues when connected to my home wireless. Sometimes all the sites i try to connect go directly to a DNS error as if they do no exist.

Additional Info:

I use OpenDNS on my router as my default dns server. So the problem manifests itself by taking me to the OpenDNS search page a states that it can not find the site name.

I have other computers connected via wifi that do not have intermittent dns problems. (running linux)

If I connect through my wired eithernet port there are no issues.

There are no issues when using the wireless in Vista.

The same thing happened last week when I was using Linux Mint Felicia (based on Ubuntu 8.10). I have now formatted and installed 9.04 beta and the issue continues.

I have manually set openDNS in my wireless settings as the default DNS server as well.

Unless I am missing something I can only assume there is an issue with the wireless drivers. Has anyone else seen this problem or known of a solution?
