routing tables - removing entry

Equipment: D-link 520+ PCI (acx100 chipset) wireless, Slackware 9.1

Question: Driver compiled and network works fine for a couple minutes. In order to have it work I have to 'route add default gw wlan0".

This works for a few minutes then I lose the connection. If I try to type route to see my routes there are two listed. The one I question is (paraphrasing here, can't copy output because my connection won't stay up on the slack box)

Destination Gateway Netmask Interface * wlan0

I can't seem to remove this entry, I've tried several variations under route del and it won't seem to remove. For some reason this is brought up when I bring up the wlan0 device using a script that came with the OSS drivers for the acx100 chipset called "start_net". I don't see any entry in the script where a gateway is set.

Is there another file somewhere that would set this destination that I could modify to set up the right gateway for me?

Or any other ideas why I keep losing the connection? Works fine in XP so it's not a hardware issue. Checked the README with the drivers, all the settings are set properly. The issue seems to be with the routing out from the wireless router to the internet.

If it was RedHat (and I know it's not, but I only have experience with RH), I would start by looking in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file to see if a default gateway is set in that.

Failing that, there may be a config file somewhere else that you can modify. Read the doc that can with the drivers you installed and it might tell you.

Slackware doesn't use the same system as RH. Thanks for the input though. I'll be checking through the different rc.inet scripts and .conf files to see if I can find something.
