My problem is like #1, networkmanager sometimes doesn't write the DNS server
correctly in /etc/resolv.conf.

I use networkmanager on KDE 3.5.10 openSUSE 11.1 and ipv6 is disabled.
I'm connecting to my AP with wireless, I can browse with the name address.
/etc/resolv.conf contain the name server correctly.

I cange the connection with the UTP cable, but different subnet and different
DNS server. I check the /etc/resolv.conf and it contains the DNS server

Then I change the connection using bluetooth and 3G using wvdial. I can connect
and get ip address from the 3G provider. I can ping ip address, but cannot
browse the name address. I check /etc/resolv.conf and it contains nothing.

The workaround for my case is changing the network setup method using
traditional method with ifup in Yast. And now the /etc/resolv.conf contain the
DNS server correctly. So I can ping and browse using the name address.
