Once you've SSH'd into the Freerunner, you can directly edit
/etc/resolv.conf with vi.
Alternately, if you alter /etc/network/interfaces on the Freerunner per
the wiki instructions, you can modify the file in such a way that it
write the /etc/resolv.conf file for you with an external DNS server.
Hint: look for a line that looks like:
up echo nameserver 192.168.0.200 > /etc/resolv.conf
and change it to something like this:
up echo nameserver 126.96.36.199 > /etc/resolv.conf
After that, exit your SSH connection, reboot your Freerunner so it
clears the USB networking stack, then the next time you plug your
Freerunner into your PC via USB it should use the new public DNS server.
The 188.8.131.52 address above is from opendns.com, a public DNS server.
