Hi Roy,

The problem, vanished I cannot duplicate it any more. So I guess all is working until I can figure out the condition that broke this. 

Thank you,

I'm not sure I fully understand.
With the the default metrics (see below), ethernet will always take precedence 
over wifi all other things being equal. Wireless gets boosted to a higher metric.

Could you describe the DNS result at each step and expectations?
That might help.

OK, lets keep to using the defaults.

To be clear, are you using any resolvconf and does it have the -C/-c options?

Job for another day.
