ppp0? Must be pppoe. That's a bit of a clue. Too bad I don't know
anything about pppoe. Surely you configured it yourself, though, at some
Yes, I do use pppoeconf to connect to the internet when using a wire. I assume you are talking about the wired connection now, yes?

So your wired connection is _not_ using the wireless router's DNS.
I shasll be honest: I would not know. If you believe this to be true (and it makes sense to me, I supose), then that is that, yes?

None of those look good - nothing like the wired session. In fact, not even
a lease for the wired session.
Again, if you believe that there are significant differences, how do I fix them?

Seems to work? You mean you get an internet connection?
Certainly I have an internet connection, which "works".
Here is my theory. I think that the problem is in the search no-domain-set.bellcanada being on top when connecting with the wireless. Note that when with the wire, it is a number. Perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps that needs to be on top. I also believe that that DNS (if indeed it is one) is not real. So, how do I fix that, if this is the case?
