Does that mean the resolv.conf file got reset? This will be a problem
for you, so it'll need sorting properly.

Try adding the following line to the file /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf (via
`sudo gedit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf`):

prepend domain-name-servers;

I'm not a dhcp expert so hopefully somebody could confirm that this line
will cause those two nameservers to be placed in /etc/resolv.conf every
time you get a lease from the modem, and before the modem is listed in


Any opinion expressed is mine (or else I'm playing devils advocate for
the sake of a good argument). My employer had nothing to do with this
