dhcp does not set gateway


Hi,

For some reason, about a month ago my Fedora Core 3 system decided that it no longer needed to set the gateway when connecting via DHCP. This happens both wirelessly and over ethernet, and on several different routers.

At home it's not a big problem - I just need to log in as root & type

route add default gw 192.168.1.1

And all is well. At the hotspot (airtport, starbucks, etc), I don't always have a friend to tell me the gateway's IP. So that's bad.

I suspect the problem lies in dhclient-3.0.1-40_FC3 as this started after an upgrade to that (& other packages), but I am also useing the atheros wireless chipset (madwifi drivers, kept current with cvs) on a thinkpad T41 with kernel 2.6.10-1.770_FC3

Has anyone else experienced the same?

my problem's solved.

I simply added the line "gateway 192.168.0.1" to the file /etc/network/options (that's what it's called in ubuntu)

thanks anyway, paddy
