I tired moving to dhcpcd from dhclient; things seem to be slightly worse, if

dhcpd allows the computer running it to give out IP addresses - you almost certainly
don't want it.  You want dhclient.

I'm not sure about the DNS situation. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right
place to find it.?

cat /etc/resolv.conf

will tell you what your nameservers are configured to be at the moment you say it (this file can get modified by dhcpclient and other programs on-the-fly) Not sure of the 'debian way' of setting its default values - I think its in /etc/network/ (others
have mentioned the files here in this thread)

route -n

will tell you what the routing tables are (something I should have mentioned in a previous email, sorry) The '-n' says use numeric answers, which is preferred if your nameserver isn't serving.
