I've been having some strange issues with what also seems to be a resolution issue. Some sites load (very slowly), others time out. Not sure how to troubleshoot this one but would appreciate help, and will update my question with more data as it's requested.
What I've tried:
dpkg-reconfigure bind9-host : read about this in a seemingly related post
dig @nameserver-ip askubuntu.com
; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> @nameserver-ip askubuntu.com ;
(2 servers found) ;; global options: +cmd ;; connection timed out;
no servers could be reached
I recently tried to upgrade to 12.10 directly from 12.04. This failed for whatever reason, to grub rescue. Allright, no problem, on another computer I get a usb key setup for installation, install (delete everything).
Load up, connect to wifi, no problems to speak of, install goes smoothly. After which, I didn't use the machine.
Now, this is a fresh install, so why is my DNS set to Google (188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206)? Strange indeed. But, perhaps a fragment from the previous install. And not my actual question but noted just in case it's relevant.
