My main router is an SMC Barricade SMC7008ABR (, I have a
secondary router (DI-604, linked to this in another room,
as far as nameserver configs go I opened up YAST2 and checked out the
config on the network card I get thiis screen warning

The resolver configuration file (/etc/resolv.conf) has been temporarily
modified by dhcpcd. You have two options:
Modify the current (changed!) version of the file
Press 'Accept' now and continue editing other (non-resolver) data. You

The nameserver and domain search list section is greyed out, Change
hostname via DHCP is checked. I can't off hand recall putting the name
server addresses that I got from my ISP into this system, of the one I
just upgraded to 9.3. Of course I could be missing something.
