The default routes have nothing to do with how many networks you are attached to. > I am sure you > are correct, I guess i just don't understand why. > is there a way i can find out the ip addr of my > dhcp server? Yes, see /var/db/dhclient.leases . Dont worry that there are serveral different addresses in there. dhclient just appends the current lease to the end of the file. > does this even work: default_router="192.168.1.254 rl1" I dont think that it does. You can find out by typing 'netstat -r'. It will give you a listing of your IP routes. > Thanks again for the help, > Brian Once again, thats what we are here for.
