I have ATTBI for an isp, someone told me that the IP TTL is expiring on the way

but increasing the (hard-coded) TTL
(at line 159 in /usr/src/contrib/isc-dhcp/common/packet.c) can help fix the
problem.
I would like to manually try to connect to my isp before i try changing the code
for DHCP.
I got my network info from my lrp operating system. I would like to switch that
to bsd.
can i use traceroute to find out the number of hops i am currently taking to get
to my isp's dhcp server?


Don't see why not, assuming: 1) The DHCP server returns icmp echo requests 2) You know the IP of the DHCP server

manual configuration
--------------------
ifconfig_rl0="inet 66.41.139.87 netmask 255.255.248.0"    #66.41.139.87/21
ifconfig_rl1="inet 192.168.1.254 netmask 255.255.255.0"

default_router="66.41.136.1 rl0"

This should be: defaultrouter="66.41.136.1"

default_router="192.168.1.254 rl1"
                  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is wrong.  Don't put that in.

domain the-matrix.net
nameserver 63.240.76.19
nameserver 204.127.198.19

This goes in your /etc/resolv.conf


is there anything else i need to manually connect to my isp?

As long as they allow the use of that IP, no. You should be good to go.
