Description Jacek Chrząszcz 2006-11-13 22:34:06 UTC
Description of problem:
I am using FC6. After plugging in the RJ45 plug of my faculty network,
NetworkManager says "wired connection established", but the routing table is
not properly set and the gateway is not visible.

Setting up the network via dhcp without NM works.

The network setup is somewhat strange, i.e. the gateway is outside of the local
network (address, netmask, broadcast, gateway, but without NM it works very well :)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
connect to my faculty network :)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start NM
2. connect eth cable
3. wait for "wired connection established"
4. ping
5. route -n

Actual results:
connect: Network is unreachable

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface   U     0      0        0 eth0

Expected results:
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=238 time=37.8 ms

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface UH    0      0        0 eth0   U     0      0        0 eth0     U     0      0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0

Additional info:

I filed this bug to the NM gnome bugzilla (a few months ago, back in the times
of FC5 ;) but it was not handled. May-be you would know better who to send it to
 (dhcdbd folks?)
