    Ok, moving from a pfsense router config to a zeroshell router config, just need a couple of pointers to point me in the right direction. (pfsense appears to have an issue when a NIC has more than 40% of its bandwidth being used, it decided to reset the device, which is very bad for MMORPGs, so looking into other distros), Also upgrading hardware from a Duron 1.1Ghz to a Pentium IV 1.9Ghz.

    Basic Setup:
    ETH0: LAN
    ETH1: PPPoE ADSL Internet(Modem in Bridged Mode)
    ETH2: Cable Internet(DHCP)
    ETH3: WiFi(AP in Bridged Mode)

    Default Gateway is through the ADSL
    Stactic Routes going through the Cable for ISP’s Free Content only, no additional traffic to go through this connection. I know the static routes that need to be setup.(had them working correctly on pfsense)

    IP Ranges:
    ADSL: Internet
    Cable: Internet (but only allowed destinations)

    I have the intended replacement router, connected to a Laptop at the moment, in order to configure it and minimise downtime for when I do swap the routers over.

    However I am getting errors when putting in the static routes.

    Something like “ERROR: Static route via metric 0 not added: RTNETLINK answers: No such process”

    Am I missing something?


    The error here means that you must have the gateway up first before applying it. If it is the ETH2 interface, add it temporarily as a static IP and the continue with your configuration. When it is time to swap the routers change the IP from static to dhcp.
