This didn't get either DNS server for me. I copied them from an OS X
system that was directly connected, into resolv.conf.

I'll try messing around with it and look at the code. I'll send-pr.
Side note. pppoe wasn't working consistently for me in 1.6. It
seemed to be a problem with the MTU setting. Some pages weren't
displaying and others were. 1.6.1 fixed the problem and I no longer
have to use the rp-pppoe package for pppoe. I haven't looked at the
code to see where the fix was, or if it was just network strangeness at
