yes I also read about that.

As part of the primary network interface, you would add (after gateway)

dns-nameserver <ip address of server>
The thing is If you do that and then go make a change to the ubuntu network manager using the gui tool, I think it wipes out your additions in /etc/network/interfaces no ?

As I've seen around the internet, many have used this solution so far.

Well anyway, so far, after till's suggestions on this topic everything works without a problem except the fact that you got to add IPs manually using the gui (one by one) in case you need more server ips.

I've just recently noticed another silly message hidden in the lower right corner (using gnome). it says:

Network service discovery disabled.
Your current network has a .local domain, which is not recommended and incompatible with the Avahi network service discovery. The service has been disabled.

I've been seeing a similar one even on ubuntu 10.04 but I always ignored it. Is there a way to set this off ?
