Nerius; I had the same problem until I put: # REQUIRE: SERVERS cleanvar ppp-user in /etc/rc.d/named script, which means that named won't start until the ppp -ddial adsl command, which is called by in /etc/rc.d/ppp-user, is finished. By then, DNS and default route will be established. I also put: # PROVIDE: ppp-user in /etc/rc.d/ppp-user. Sorry for writing you directly but I don't know why, the freebsd-questions list (in fact, all freebsd lists i'm subscribed to) is refusing my posts. Not even the list manager/owner gets them. If you would be so kind to forward this to them, I'd be very greatful. Maybe they could find out why so I could take action to try remedy what is causing the refusals of my e-mail.
