I am trying to use OpendNS on my Ubuntu laptop. Each time I connect to a new Wi-Fi I am forced to setup DNS on that connection. Is there a way to make the system use OpenDNS servers for any network connection I use on that laptop.

Are you connecting to each network using DHCP? – Andrew Lott Mar 19 '13 at 15:02
At home, I use Comcast. At work, I can hook up to Guest DNS for my personal laptop. When I am mobile, I can hook to Barnes and Nobles, Starbucks or available Wi-Fi hotspot. Whatever wi-fi I am connected, I want all the connections to have the DNS settings routed through OpenDNS servers. Is this possible? – Deepak Kumar Vasudevan Mar 19 '13 at 15:07
