hi!

whenever i run /etc/rc.d/netif it will read rc.conf and add the pc IP and
netmask but it wont read the default gateway resulting lost connectivity to
internet

# -- my /etc/rc.conf :
defaultrouter="192.168.1.1"
hostname="msc.edu"
ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.1.9 netmask 255.255.255.0"
inetd_enable="YES"
linux_enable="YES"
saver="daemon"
sshd_enable="YES"
#usbd_enable="YES"

# -- while issuing /etc/rc.d/netif restart:
[root@msc ~]# /etc/rc.d/netif restart
Stopping network: lo0 rl0 plip0 pfsync0 pflog0.
lo0: flags=8049 mtu 16384

inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000
rl0: flags=8843 mtu 1500
options=8
inet 192.168.1.9 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
ether 00:15:e9:7c:76:12
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX )

# -- the result of running netif to routing tables:
[root@msc ~]# netstat -rn

# -- i have to manually add default gateway to get my gateway back on

***my question is, why /etc/rc.d/netif wont read directly from my
/etc/rc.conf as I already stated the defaultrouter="192.168.1.1" there?

i'm on FreeBSD 6.2 on LAN

[root@msc ~]$ uname -a
FreeBSD www.msc.edu 6.3-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.3-PRERELEASE #1: Sat Dec 1
14:31:02 MYT 2007 root@msc.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MSC i386
[root@msc~]$

thanks for helping
