Network preferences: change/improve the handling of DNS
|Reported by:||Giova84||Owned by:||axeld|

On other operating systems is possible to set DNS servers independently from other IP addresses, also if DHCP mode is activated. On Haiku, instead, is only possible to manually set DNS if in network preferences the mode is set to static. DNS servers should be also manually set in DHCP mode. Besides, the network preflet, should also contain two entries for set the DNS servers: currently they have to be inserted just in one field, separating them by a comma; this could be not clear and seems odd. If I attempt to edit the "resolv.conf" file with other DNS, at the next boot this file will be reset with DNS servers retrieved by DHCP.
