'looking up xxxx' forever


I have a dialup modem.

Pppconfig configured the connection with 'nameservers dynamic'.

/etc/ppp/resolv.conf always contains:


although the timestamp on the file changes with each connection:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 53 2010-04-03 11:00 resolv.conf

Now the problem:

Several times a day internet communication stops and all that appears on the status bar of iceweasel is 'Looking up xxxx' where xxxx is the site that was being displayed.

This is only resolved when you take down the ppp0 interface and bring it back up, redialling the ISP.

And the same nameservers appear in resolv.conf.

Can anyone explain this behavior? And what to do about it?

BTW it again happened at 11:00 as you can see.
