Your /etc/network/interfaces file says that your network interface is
configured by DHCP, probably provided by your router.  The wrong DNS
addresses are derived from the DHCP info, so you should fix them in
the DHCP server, which is probably your router.  If that's configured
by your provider, then ask them to reconfigure it correctly with
respect to the name server addresses.
