route command taking a long time

I recently added another route statement to a rh7.1 system and now when I do a simple route command it takes a long time to return with the response. When I use the route -n format it responds immediately, with the same information as the route command. How do I correct my route entry to eliminate the time it is taking to resolve the ip info. MY statement was route add 216.113.x.0

The long time of 'route' response due to the DNS request.
The host you tried to define the route to has no host name.
So after 'route' command it takes some second (minutes) when DNS trying to resolve IP to the name fails.

And therefore you are getting the same results with 'route' and 'route -n' (the second one force to show IPs rather than names)

BTW: AFAIK it should be 'route add 216.113.x.0 gw'
