Btw, I have a netgear router, I should have mentioned it.

With dhcpcd (I'm not sure with dhclient), you can specify that
you don't want your /etc/resolv.conf to be replaced with the
values your router hands out - it's really handy.
But it requires you to run dhcpcd instead of dhclient - or that
you read the dhclient man page a few times with apropriate x-ray
glasses, since I could't find what I was looking for in it.

Good luck :-)
