[ale] followup: bellsouth.net adsl setup



Ah Ha!

You shouldn't have an ip address for the ethernet card. 

The first block of stuff below is from
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 my internal LAN card:
DEVICE=eth0
IPADDR=192.168.0.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
IPXPRIMARY_802_2="no"
IPXACTIVE_802_2="no"
IPXPRIMARY_802_3="no"
IPXACTIVE_802_3="no"
IPXPRIMARY_ETHERII="no"
IPXACTIVE_ETHERII="no"
IPXPRIMARY_SNAP="no"
IPXACTIVE_SNAP="no"
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
PEERDNS=no

This is from the second interface, my dsl card:
DEVICE=eth1
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
IPXPRIMARY_802_2="no"
IPXACTIVE_802_2="no"
IPXPRIMARY_802_3="no"
IPXACTIVE_802_3="no"
IPXPRIMARY_ETHERII="no"
IPXACTIVE_ETHERII="no"
IPXPRIMARY_SNAP="no"
IPXACTIVE_SNAP="no"
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=no


The problem you are having is the routing of packets doesn't know how to
get anywhere. I'll bet if you run "netstat -rn"  (mine below):
netstat -rn
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt
Iface
66.149.133.1    0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH       40 0          0
ppp0
192.168.0.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U        40 0          0
eth0
127.0.0.0       0.0.0.0         255.0.0.0       U        40 0          0
lo
0.0.0.0         66.149.133.1    0.0.0.0         UG       40 0          0
ppp0


You won't see the Gateway address pointing to your ppp0 interface, but
will see it pointing to your eth0 interface. 

You should be able to clean this up by simply deleting the IPadress and
netmask lines from the ifcfg-eth0 file and restart networking.
