Let me try again, here is my situation and question with a little more detail.

My local network ( consists of two machine BSD1 ( and

BSD2 ( Both of these machines use the subnet mask
and gateway

There is a third machine GATEWAY (, ip address from isp) has two
nics and acts as the router.

All of these machine are connected to a switch locally.

When my internet connection goes down for whatever reason I

loose connections in my local network. For example, i can't ping

from is there any explaination for this?

ifconfig from BSD2:


inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast

inet6 fe80::250:baff:fe60:8486%rl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1

ether 00:50:ba:60:84:86

media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)

status: active

netstat from BSD2:
