Re: nslu2: two ethernets: one by default

# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
localnet        *          U     0      0        0 eth0
localnet * U 0 0 0 wlan0 default UG 0 0 0 wlan0
default         UG    0      0        0 eth0

wlan0 has static ip and eth0 has static ip is the router (what has internet connectivity). I just want to have local network connections between all other devices and my nslu2.

Linux in general does not deal with ignoring routes just because an
interface is down.  Unix like systems never do.  Routers do.
So in theory I have correct route table for when I unplugged eth0?. In theory, can I connect via wlan0? Is it true? What fails specifically?
You can configure them as different IP networks and use both, or you
have to get something like quagga involved to manage your routes with
link detect enabled.

Can you explain me more on that. These interfaces have different ip. Is it not enougth?

Lennart, please, explain the details because I'm an ignorant user in that field.
