    Does the 851 receive DNS information from the ISP or just an IP address? It looks like the latter but wanted to be sure.

    Thanks.

    Dynamic Host Configuration Protocl (DHCP), defined in RFC 2132, is a
    process by which multiple IP configuration variables are passed from a DHCP
    server to a DHCP client for use. These can include:
    * IP address
    * subnet mask
    * default gateway
    * multiple DNS servers
    * multiple WINS servers
    * WINS lookup options
    * DNS domain name suffix
    * hostname
    * multiple time servers
    * TFTP server
    * boot file
    ....and many other configurable options.

    Your Cisco 851 router with DHCP enabled on its Internet interface receives
    the DNS server list from your ISP.
