Nano DNS woes


Recommended Posts


I have set up my Nano to share my wlan0 internet on Kali. I followed all the instructions including running the latest wp6.sh script. 

The Nano can ping IP addresses but can not resolve URL's. i.e you can ping but not google.com. 

I am thinking just change the DNS server on the NANO but how do you do this? Should be easy but not proving so.

Help appreciated.

Hello, I actually had a similar problem, but in my case, I wanted to use a specific DNS server. I solved this by modifying the /etc/dnsmasq.conf and adding the line "server= [DNS Server]"

I found this by reading up on OpenWrt, more specifically, Here

Good Luck, I hope this helps!

Here is my previous post
