Getting Synaptic/D-Link DSL-G624T Router To Work (Mepis 6.5)

First, type in this:

kate /etc/resolv.conf

Then hash out the entry that's there and add two new nameservers, so it looks like below:


Save and then retry Synaptic. If the fix works, when you reboot it'll reset, so you need to edit your dhclient.con file to make the fix permanent.

cp /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf.bak
kate /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf

Find this line in the code.....

#prepend domain-name-servers;

and replace it with......

prepend domain-name-servers,;

(notice I've removed the hash symbol as well as changing the servers).

Next, look for the "domain-name-servers" line, and remove it. The text will look something like this........

request domain-name-servers, subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers, domain-name, host-name, netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope;

Remove the bit that says "domain name servers," making sure you remove the comma too. Save the file and then restart your network. The changes should then hold on reboot.
