I istalled a dhcp client (dhclient3) in order to let my computer
interact with a router-switch (Netgear RP614) that contains a dhcp server.
The output of "ifconfig eth0" is:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:05:5D:AA:3B:E0
inet addr:192.168.0.3 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

TX packets:22 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:472 (472.0 b) TX bytes:2827 (2.7 KiB)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xb800
This seems in order with the instructions from Netgear. Nevertheless,
when I try to reach any Internet site, I get an answer (helas I didn't
write it down) that lets me think that its name cannot be resolved. In
effect, I didn't give any piece of information concerning a DNS server.
Do I have to put it in /etc/resolv.conf ?
If yes, which address do I have to write there, the default gateway of
the Netgear box (192.168.0.1), or an address given by my ISP?
Do I have to put somewhere the address of the default gateway?
