Re my previous message, it appears the need for frequent re-activation of
the connection is due to just losing the DNS information. I can stay

If the hotel doesn't block udp port 53 you should be able to run your
own dns server.  if its installed

  service named start

should get it running.  you could test it with

  dig google.com @127.0.0.1

if it doesn't time out you should be able to configure your network to
use that as its DNS and you would be away.
