Today due to my ISP gave me a new ip address and netmask. I changed the ip address on the Ethernet 1 interface but it would not even pink the gateway. I made sure that the default gateway was set correctly with the ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 201.159.177.X command. After troubleshooting a few hours and being stumped it worked when I used the command ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Eth1. Why would using the interface name make a difference?
Eth 1 configuration: (last octet replaced with X)
interface Ethernet1 description Internet bandwidth 10240 ip address 201.159.177.X 255.255.255.252 ip access-group 10 in ip access-group 10 out ip nat outside ip route-cache flow duplex auto !
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Ethernet1
Any thoughts? :-/
