View Full Version : 'route add default gw' is not working

09-13-2003, 03:09 PM
I have a newly installed Knoppix/Debian (on HD) and I made an apt update/upgrade via network.

When I booted the pc for the next time, I couldn't reach any any IP outside my network anymore - this is probably because there is no route:
#route shows: * U 0 0 0 eth0

My DSL-Router is and I can ping it without any problem and also the other pc in the network.
But when I try (after: ifconfig eth0 down - and also up - I tried both)

route add default gw

I always get the message:
network is unreachable

The same message appears already during boot process.

Has anybody any hint what the problem is?
I would be really, really glad! :cry:
