Subject: hw-loopback

> Hi,
> I am trying to get my freebsd machine to access the internet but, I can
only get the machine to ping itself. Everytime I try to ping outside the
machine I get "no route found". I believe my problem lies in the
configuration of the ethernet card. Running ifconfig shows me that everthing
is there but instead of <full duplex>, it says <hw-loopback>.
> I was successfully running windows on this machine and it did access the
internet, so I know the problem lies somewhere in the configuration. The
version of FreeBSD is 5.2.
> Any help is appreciated

David, it sounds like you simply don't have a gateway route assigned to the
system. Try running netstat -ran and see if you show a default route in your
routing table.
