Description

[Note: This has already been resolved in 5feadf7fca75866582af73834c8d2ab14edca456 - Putting an entry here for others to find]

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.

Workaround 1:
Add DNS servers under System > General. If you do not know your DNS servers, use common public DNS servers like 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4 or 208.67.222.222 / 208.67.220.220

Workaround 2:
Install the System Patches Package

Add a new patch and fetch/apply it:

mount root filesystem rw (on embedded systems) using

/etc/rc.conf_mount_rw

before applying the patch. This can be done either using the exec.php from the webinterface or console login.

Fixed in 2.0.3-RELEASE. Ticket can be close.
