Description

I just gave my SiS900 built-in network another try with DHCP (#1744), no luck, so I select 'Static' and enter all the info (except for DNS 2) and press 'Apply', then close the preflet.

  1. ifconfig has the right IP address, broadcast address and mask.
  2. /boot/system/etc/resolv.conf has the right nameserver.
  3. Network preflet still shows DHCP, reproducibly.
  4. A newly opened BeZillaBrowser doesn't use the new, static DNS server.

After a reboot, the preflet does show 'Static', and the correct DNS server is used.

Note that the opposite direction (from Static to DHCP) worked as expected as far as preflet and browser are concerned.
