NFS doesn't work when internet down


I got cable connection and it's down little bit too often. I have mounted some directories in my Debian router to my Gentoo workstation. When my internet connection is down and I start up Gentoo system it says unable to mount network filesystem and won't start. Then I have to use interactive boot and remove those mounts from fstab.

Anyway those mounts shouldn't have anything to do with internet because my LAN still works perfectly fine. Any ideas?

Please provide your /etc/exports file.

Please check whether you are using IP address or name of server for defining NFS shares.
If you are using server name, please replace it with IP address of server on internal LAN and check.

Regarding Removing entries from /etc/fstab :
You can use soft mount instead of hard mount, so that you don't need to login interactively for removing entries.

I am using IP address. Here's my router's /etc/exports file:

I probably should change something.
