DNS confusion

Hi All,

I'm a little bit confused about issues I seem to have getting my laptops with Fedora to work with my ISP's nameserver. I've tried two different releases of Fedora on two different laptops and found the same issue. Whenever it connects to the network using my DSL cable, I can access the FedorProject pages, but it can't find any other addresses. The network configuration shows the same DNS address that I see when I plug into my windows laptop, but it doesn't seem to work with the Fedora computers.

If I manually edit my /etc/resolv.conf file or my Network Configuration utility to add another public DNS address, then it works for the rest of that session, but then I need to do it again next time I connect. It makes sense that it would be getting my ISP's DNS address when I connect, but it seems strange that it doesn't seem to work with that address.

It doesn't take much time or effort to manually edit the resolv.conf file each time, but it seems strange to need to. Does anyone know anything about why it won't work with the address that it gets when it connects?
