In 2.0.2-RELEASE, PPP type WANs, such as PPPoE, do not obtain DNS servers properly. By consequence, if a user has defined no custom DNS servers, they can end up without functional DNS.
This is due to an issue in the ppp-linkup script not properly parsing the parameters passed to it by mpd.
Add DNS servers under System > General. If you do not know your DNS servers, use common public DNS servers like 126.96.36.199 / 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 / 220.127.116.11
