Let me try again, here is my situation and question with a little more detail.
My local network (192.168.1.0) consists of two machine BSD1 (192.168.1.40) and
BSD2 (192.168.1.42). Both of these machines use the subnet mask 255.255.255.0
and gateway 192.168.1.254.
There is a third machine GATEWAY (192.168.1.254, 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 192.168.1.40
from 192.168.1.42. is there any explaination for this?
ifconfig from BSD2:
rl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.42 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
inet6 fe80::250:baff:fe60:8486%rl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
netstat from BSD2:
