 Subject:  re-posted, sorry - ISP gateway on other network than IP issued by dhcp
 Date:  Mon, 26 Jul 2004 15:27:58 +0200
hi, guys.
i'm sorry to re-post this, but i need help on it

with the help of couple of you, at least now i'm conscious about what 
my problem is.

the gateway that my ISP's DHCS provides me, sits outside of the IP 
network (and changes sometimes).

from the DHCP i get this

IP: 213.84.18.xxx

the DNS's are

looks like freeBSD (differently from Fedora or other "easy" distros) 
doesn't accept this kind of "difference".
i think this should be solved in the m0n0 distro instead of trying to 
add routes and stuff like that.
every time i add a net to the routing table, it gets deleted after a 
while because the WAN interface
is set to work as a DHCP client.

Fred Mol posted this in a reply


and they talk about manually adding -net and routes

how to make these changes be permanent (considering i'm not that 
network or Linux expert?).
as far as i know Fedora is one of the linux distros who's not affected 
by this (not sure, though).
infact my fedora was working perfectly when connected to the ADSL modem 
as DHCP client.

is there any GURU around that can help?

as always...
thanx guys for all your help
