netmask doesn't make sense
 
I am in a LAN :
the network administrator gave this settings:
my IP: 86.55.180.97
gateway:86.55.180.100
netmask:255.255.254.0

I use Slackware 10 with 2.6.15 Kernel.
All went well until 2 days ago when suddenly the internet was down.

when I type route I get this:
Destination Gateway Source Mask
86.55.180.0 86.55.180.100 255.255.254.0

why did the destination IP changed?

and why can't I delete this entry ?
I've tried to put this
route -net add 86.55.180.97 gw 86.55.180.100 netmask 255.255.254.0 dev eth0

but it doesn't work

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
