/etc/resolv.conf is the file used by resolvers to get name server address when 
resolving domain name to IP.  man resolv.conf will show you more info.

NetworkManager keeps that file up to date and puts there data from your 
activated connection (either DHCP or configured manually).

/etc/resolv.conf.tmp is probably a backup file you (or some script) created.

How did you configure your wireless connection? Check whether it's properly 
configured using nm-conection-editor.
