Just a quick guess, you know that DNS requests use TCP sometimes instead of UDP? You need to allow both..

Thanks for the reply. Allowing TCP didn't fix it, but it appears to be solved. In trying to solve it, I just grabbed a sample script off of the internet, modified it to use my IP's, and ran that instead of my own script. Bingo it worked. Then I put my script back in place, without modifying anything, and it worked too, even after rebooting.

The only thing I can see in the other script that I can attribute this to is the command /sbin/depmod -a , which my script didn't have. I'd like to break it again to be sure what the problem was, but I'm not sure how. Anyway, works great now.
