Re: [vox-tech] Can't access internet.

255.255.252 is weird but probably correct.  If I understand subnets correctly, that would mean that,, and would all be on the same subnet.  Weird, dunno why they like that, but, to each his own.

I'd say Jeff's right, that other default route is to blame.

"route del -net treehouse.ellis" I believe.

Whew!  I take it you can't ping the ip addresses of your name servers? (I just did, they are up)  Can't think of too much else! Like Pete said, look in /var/log/messages and post the exact output of the route command.  Maybe a weird settings got set (or needs to be set) on the gateway.

If it's not the NIC card and it's not the name service and it's not the dhcp client, I'd definitely say it has to do with the routing table one way or another.

Incidentally what dhcp client are you using?  dhcpcd or pump?

I now have dhcpcd running.  I can't use tcpdump, because I don't have it, nor any way to get it at the moment.  If I had netatalk, I could download it to my Mac laptop and transfer it, but I don't have netatalk, either.

I do have sniffit, though, and when I ping the ISP''s gateway, I get nothing.  However, I do get input that seems intended for another machine on the cable ( ...oh, here's another:

Here is the result of route:

Destination     Gateway            Genmask            Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
localnet            *                 U 0          0            0 eth0       *                 U        0 0            0 eth1
default                    UG 0         0             0 eth1
default              treehouse.ellis                UG 1          0            0 eth0

That netmask value of looks odd to me.

The relevant portions of dmesg are:

rtl8139.c:v1.07 5/6/99 DOnald Becker http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/rtl8139.html
eth0: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xb800, IRQ 12, 00:50:ba:86:2b:7a
eth1: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xb400, IRQ 10, 00:50:ba:86:34:ff

It's late, and I don't have time to review xconfig.
