[Dnsmasq-discuss] dnsmasq stops working after changing from ppp to dhcp

I recently changed internet providers and so changed from a pppoe 
connection (using pppd) to a dhcp connection (using dhcp-client).  In 
the original setup I was using dnsmasq to act as a dhcp server and dns 
server to a home network.  There were no problems with the setup.

I changed providers and so switched from using pppd to dhcp-client. 
Dnsmasq was no longer able to provide dns lookup for client computers. 
I replaced dhcp-client with dhcpcd and installed resolvconf but it's 
still not working.

 From what I understand, in the original configuration, dnsmasq should 
read from /etc/ppp/resolv.conf to provide dns server information.  When 
I switched to dhcp, that file was no good anymore, but once I install 
resolvconf, I expect that dnsmasq should read from /etc/resolv.conf, but 
it seems that is not happening.

I'm running debian sarge.  Can someone give me some tips to debug this 


Good day, eh.
