TiTex & Pititis thanks for your answers.
TiTex my interface is set to static with an added dns-nameservers line as man resolvconf states. dhcp is not enabled. I want to make this work the proper way as I do a lot of update && distro upgrades and it keeps breaking up if everything is not done properly.
Pititis I tried what you suggested. Unfortunately nothing is added in /etc/resolv.conf. It's stuck at nameservers 127.0.0.1
any other suggestions?
