Somewhere, somehow, you have to pick up an address for a DNS server and get it
into /etc/resolv.conf. I've always manually put in such an address but a
dial-up connection should also pick one up. Question is: where does that
happen in a wireless connect and that should be a function of your wireless
connection box I would think.

But /etc/resolv.conf is the place to look to see what's happening with DNS on
your machine and if there's no ip address for a DNS server in there, then you
have no DNS server working for you.
