Hi!

Well, you have to tell the DHCP server to also provide to the client
gateway and DNS information explicitly.

My notebook gets its /etc/resolv.conf entries also from DHCP @work,
respectively when I work @home from my DSL provider.
So dhclient is able to do that, resp. the ppp when it comes to the DSL
Line...
