i got some success with the following commands

WAN IF/IP = ed0 / Official IP

cmd1: route add -net -netmask -iface ed0
cmd2: route add -net default -netmask
cmd3: route add default

seems to work correctly! now the arp cache shows the correct mac of and ping and masq works.

annotations ????????????????

best regards andreas
