But there's never a route to the DNS during boot is there? This one just
looks a little strange because it's in a private IP range. I'll try
changing it though and see if anything happens.

I've tried changing the DNS to 192.168.13.1 .......

No, no effect, still have an empty /etc/resolv.conf.

When I reboot the same laptop into Windows XP (it has dual boot) then it
gets the DNS correctly from the router.

In my experience the router 'should' forward but I have come across some
that don't do this properly.

... and now I have replaced Network Manager with Wicd and it works
perfectly. :-)
