Some of these I have tried, some not... I'll give them a go tonight and
let you know :)
> 1. Can you add a static route that is not your default route? ie. if you're
> adding 192.168.0.0 as your default, try adding a static 192.168.0.[machine's
> ip] netmask 255.255.255.255 instead, just to see if you can modify your
> routing table at all.
> 2. Have you verified all of the appropriate conf files? /etc/resolv.conf,
> /etc/host.conf, /etc/hosts. This is really just for kicks/double-checking,
> since I don't think any of these would cause the error your getting.
> 3. Have you tried disabling your eth0 with ifconfig then bringing it back
> 4. What kind of results to you get if your try and ping or trace to your
> eth0, or to anything on that network? That might give you some clues.
