wrong IP

Postby yonnie on Mon Jan 14, 2013 5:40 pm

My LM14 Mate 64-bit is mis-behaving. It is ignoring the DHCP from my router and using it's own settings for IP address. It doesn't matter if I set it to static either. After boot-up it just sets itself up as it was before, wrong. Something else too, the DNS server 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 come up. These are OpenDNS, LLC servers according to "who is". I erase these, set DHCP to automatic, re-boot and there you are... back again!

I do not have this issue with the 32-bit version running on another computer on same LAN. Just the 64-bit one.

DNS servers are automatically switched to OpenDNS as a fall-back solution. See the blog about 14.1 for info on that: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2234

Is this a install on hardware, or on a virtual machine? Using wired or wireless?

set your DNS through network manager. It looks like two cables sticking together in the time tray. Right click and edit connections.
I generally don't use salutation, valedication, or please when answering your questions. I'm not a jerk; you have a question, I have a possible solution.
