Try "route add default" and then rerun "netstat -rn" and post the results. Post your /etc/netmasks file and post the results of "ifconfig -a".


Actually after trying to manually add the default route, do a "netstat -nvr" and post that. This displays the netmasks...
# netstat -nrv

problem was solved. The issue was that the interface from the deafult GW network range was not yet configured. I mean at the time when /etc/defaultrouter is processed and added to routing table (network/physical startup) interface was not yet up. It happend becasue someone placed interface config script in rc dir instead of creating the /etc/hostname.* file. I wasn't expecting that.
Thanks for all support
