Permanent Default Route

Permanent Default Route

After an install I edit my route in rc.conf and save.

But upon reboot I doint have a connection unless I use the route add default command.

So basicall Everytime I reboot I have to enter my route manually.

Any suggestion on what I could possibly be doing wrong?

hi there,
this part is probably wrong in your rc.conf:
gateway="default gw"
ROUTES=(gateway) <= make sure here is uncommented!!
is "network" in the daemons list?? you need that to make it work.
