PCMCIA configuration troubles

I used pcnetconfig to configure my PCMCIA network

  Specify the IP address...     NN.MM.OO.17
  Enter the netmask   
  Enter the network address:    NN.MM.OO.0     (default)
  Enter the broadcast address:  NN.MM.OO.255   (default)
  Enter the gateway address:    NN.MM.OO.254
  Enter the local domain name:  xxx.yy.xx

  ... 1st 2nd and 3rd nameservers...
  no nfs mount poins

With this configuration I have no route to the gateway...

I try different things and found that it works if I added the following
in /etc/network/interfaces

  iface eth0 inet static
        address NN.MM.OO.17
        network NN.MM.OO.0

and make

    ifup eth0

It is working but I really don't understant why I shoud add this last.

Now I can connect to the network, but I would like to have a cleaner installation.
