Re: no ipchains with 2.2/no network with 2.4

I removed it, but it has no effect. (I just added it in my "tests" sessions, but without success).

In fact, the same network config is used without ipchains and with ipchains, so routing with that config worked with the kernel-image-2.2.20-idepci and doesn't work with kernel-image-2.2.20.

p.s. when you suggest a modification, could you also explain what the expected effect would be ? In that case, all the computers from my internal network have the gateway specification of, so I don't know what harm it could have to specify it also on the gateway itself. If it was using DHCP (but with a reserved address), it would receive that same info also.

Thanks for your suggestions anyway, it allows me to have 15 minutes of hope while restarting the alternate kernel ;-)

Remove this last line ( gateway ), so that `route -n` (after
appropriate ifdown/ifup) should list:

without the following line:
