using the 'route add' command, and the interface as, using the
'ifconfig up' command.  If that is the way you have set it up the above
is pinging the interface, not the router.

/sbin/ifconfig should have a second line for eth0 starting:

          inet addr:

if is the interface IP number.

Not necessary.  As a matter of interest I have  localhost copernicus  router

but that's only because I can do 'telnet router' and not have to remember
the address.
