I am using my Verizon Wireless broadband card to connect to the internet VIA Gnome-ppp.
It connects and the log shows my IP address and DNS servers but DNS will not resolve names to IP addresses. I can ping IP address on the internet but cannot resolve names
Here is the Gnome-ppp log:
--> Ignoring malformed input line: ";Do NOT edit this file by hand!"
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATM0L0DT#777
--> Waiting for carrier.
--> Carrier detected. Waiting for prompt.
--> Don't know what to do! Starting pppd and hoping for the best.
--> Starting pppd at Wed Apr 27 05:40:21 2011
--> Pid of pppd: 3040
--> Using interface ppp0
--> local IP address 220.127.116.11
--> remote IP address 18.104.22.168
--> primary DNS address 22.214.171.124
--> secondary DNS address 126.96.36.199
As you can see it gets and IP address and DNS Addresses.
If I use VPNC to connect to my office LAN I can resolve names again because I am using my office DNS servers.
That's just kind of a pain to always have to VPN back to work just to brows the web.
