I have LMDE XFCE and it works nicely, but I have this strange issue when I try to set the DNS servers to custom addresses (for OpenDNS).
I'm doing it as described on their site, that is: Network Manager -> Modifiy connections -> (my wired connection) -> IPv4 settings -> method: automatic addresses only (DHCP). This unlocks the box where I can enter the custom DNS.
But when I apply and reconnect, I lose access to my LAN (NAS, other PC) -- there's even no more 'network' item in Thunar.
I'm very surprised with this behavior as this used to work under Gnome (Ubuntu). What am I doing wrong?
TIA for any advice - regards, Daniel.
