DNS name resolution doesn't work on the Edison. I would say there are two problems:
1) Irrespective of what's written in /etc/resolv.conf, name resolution does not work.
2) The nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf always gets overwritten with 192.168.0.1, which won't work for me. I replaced it with google's name server, but the change gets reverted after reboot.
Any hints are appreciated.
Ok, I actually got it wrong. It's not only a name resolution problem as I first assumed. No address outside of the internal network (192.168.0.x) is reachable, not even by IP.
However, I can ssh to the Edison from another Computer in the same network and ping back and forth.

Have you tried flashing your Edison module? /docs/DOC-98643 https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-98643. You should be able to edit the /etc/resolv.conf file, so the Edison overwriting the address is not normal, connecting to other addresses outside the internal network should also be possible, so I'm guessing this might be a corrupted image.
thanks for your reply. It is resolved now, but the main culprit was probably not the corrupted image. Actually, changing the assigned IP within the same subrange suddenly resolved the issue. I am not sure whether it was a router misconfiguration or some problem with the Edison, but for some reason it works now...
