Symptom

Your nameserver has changed from ip address

Cause

none

Solution

In /etc/resolv.conf which is contained in the resolvconf package, you can find the DNS information.

e.g.

nameserver 192.168.12.6

The resolvconf package makes this /etc/resolv.conf into a symbolic link and manages its contents by the hook scripts automatically.
