Re: Weired routing error
tried; no difference :-(
Still at loss
I understand your router preference, my observation is that the
default route for a network is often associated with the first device
(ip number) in a given subnet ie with 192.168.0.0 the first device is
192.168.0.1 - the only thing i noticed in your setup was that the two
routers were effectively on the same subnet, this is not a practice I
employ normally. I am not suggesting you use both all the time, I am
suggesting you assign the two routers to different network addresses
and see if that makes a difference.

actually I do not want to use the ISDN router at all except as a
backup - mostly it is switched off anyway and it was when I first
tried network access. I used it just on a hunch that there might be a
problem with my DSL connection. I tried the setup from Knoppix and
using the route commands in my previous post traffic nicely went
first through one and through the other gateway.
Any more ideas? Is there some routing cache which one could clear or
something along that lines? The main problem for me is that Knoppix
and Sarge setups look identical to me but one works and the other
does not, which leaves me in the dark...
