If config -a shows a lot of things hehe. I can't paste it but I'll try to type this out:
Sis0: flags=8843<Up,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1400 inet6 fe80::2d0:9ff:feec:9126%sis0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 inet 192.168.1.13 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255 ether 00:d0:09:ec:91:26 media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX) status: active Plip0: flags-8810<POINTOPOINT, SIMPLEX, MULTICAST> mtu 1500 Lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000 Inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 Inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3 The output of netstat -rn shows; Default ; 192.168.1.1 ; UGS ; 0 ; 0 ; sis0 127.0.0.1 ; 127.0.0.1 ; UH ; 1 ; 416; lo0 192.168.1 ; link#1 ; UC ; 0 ; 0 ; sis0 192.168.1.1 ; link#1 ; UHLW ; 1 ; 126 ; sis0 192.168.1.13 ; 127.0.0.1 ; UGHS ; 0 ; 0 ; lo0 I do not currently have a /etc/resolve.conf - is it safe for me to just create that?
