Description of problem:
route add fails with error "SIOCADDRT: No such process\n" with my wireless
connection. I've seen it several times in /var/log/messaes resulting in my
notebook being unable to automatically set a default route and get outside my
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure wired network port is not connected
2. # route add default gw 192.168.1.10
see attched strace log
Created attachment 312291 [details]
note the wired network also does not work correctly with NetworkManager in that
a default route is not set automatically. What is unique about the wired
network is that I CAN manually set the default route.
Please, can you describe here whole configuration of your network? I neam IP,
After researching this further I have found that the problem appears to be with
my dhcp server (linksys running openwrt). I was using static dhcp assignments
and when I disable the MAC address association everything works fine. My
current theory is that I have a some stale MAC address associations that I can't
clear out of the router for some reason.
Is this still a bug? IOW should 'route' return the error it does if it can't
set a route?
In my opinion, this is the configuration error, not a error in net-tools.
Returned error message reflect the problem which was caused by setting wrong
route, so I think that there is no problem with it. In any case I'm closing this
