Hi!

I have:
- Macbook Pro 15' 2010
- D-Link DSL-2740B
I connect using Wi-Fi

I have very annoying problem.
I have to manually type my primary and secondary DNS adresses to get my internet to work.
I configurated DNS adresses in my router.
Everytime i change my network (for example i go to school) i have to delete
these addresses from macbook settings (i need them only in my network).
Very strange thing is that on bootcamp (Windows 7) it takes DNS adresses automatically from the router with no problems. :confused:

Can you help me please? :(

Thanks! :D
I used OpenDNS adresses.

May the :apple: be with you.

You may find that there are even better DNS servers for your particular location
and system. Check out "namebench" which will test all local servers, including the OpenDNS and Google servers, and recommend servers that get the best performance. The tests take some time so do them when you are not pressed or facing a deadline! I have found that the best servers change a few times a year, so I run namebench bi-annually, and ignore the suggestion to use the router "198.... etc."

Which version of Mac OS X are you using? You can find this by clicking on the Apple in the menu bar, then choose About This Mac.
