Konq or linux dns problem

Think I've been here before but this started happening a couple of weeks ago. 

Many web pages are sloooooooooooooow ever so slow. Looking with ethereal a dns 
request is sent out to tiscali's primary dns server. No reply for 5 secs so 
the secondary is tried and the address comes back within 25mSec. I have my 
router set to use the tiscali numbers - and 67. 67 is the 
secondary. I've switch the addresses round in the router to use 67 first but 
the system still uses 66 first. Me thinks something in my system is doing 
this and not using the router as it should.

The router is a draytek vigor 28000. (adsl 2+ ready.)

Any comments? How can I fix it. Pages can take ages to come up as lots use 
source from many many servers. Bit like the ipv6 problem from a while ago.

The problem may have come about because of a suse upgrade. I've had a simular 
problem with a router that would automatically detect the dns server. It 
looked like some web tracker was spoofing it which is why I put the addresses 
in the router.
