I've just had a Road Runner cable modem installed, and am trying to switch my
linux firewall server from my old ISP via diald to Road Runner via cable.
I've installed the rrlogind package from http://www.vortech.net/rrlinux, and
have the cable modem connected to eth1. The DHCP client successfully
configures eth0, and I can ping anything on my own subnet, but whenever I try
to ping outside my subnet, I get "Network is unreachable." Starting diald
allows me to ping ok, but that's not the way I want to go!
If I do "/sbin/route add default dev eth1", then I can see the TX LED
flashing on the cable modem, but nothing comes back.
I seem to be in a catch-22 situation. I suspect that I can't get outside my
subnet until I've logged on to Road Runner, but the DNS'es and logon server
are all on another subnet!
Any and all suggestions gratefully accepted. Am I missing something really
Thanks in advance.
