Hi Guys

I have been having problems connecting to the internet. It has been an 
interesting journey to say the least. It seems there was a conflict with ipv6 
which has now been taken care of. However, I am still experiencing 
difficulties connecting to apt-get. It says network is unreachable. I am 
connecting to the net through a router/modem and d-link switch. I don't think 
these are the problems because I have a Mac that connects without any 

I have two computers with the same problems. One now has a static IP address 
and the other connects through dhcp. Does apt-get use its own dns servers 
when connecting to the net please. How can I set dns servers please? What I 
would like to be able to do is to set the router address and also the dns 
addresses for my isp and tell apt-get to connect through that.

Many thanks.
