eigrp routing issue

i am setting up a new office and everything was working fine until i tried to surf the net. i looked at the routing table and found this entry - D [90/2172416] via, 01:36:31, serial1/0:0 when it should be D [90/2172416] via, 01:36:31, Serial1/0:0

it looks to me that Internet traffic is being sent back to the subnet when i need it to use

any ideas?



Re: eigrp routing issue

Hey there Jerry,

That route has been sent to you from EIGRP. To have a look at who sent it to you, type "sh ip route" it should tell you. If you think you should have a better route to via then it may be in the eigrp database. Type "sh ip eigrp top" and see if it's in there. If it is, then the route from may have a better distance, you can alter this to make it worse that the route you want to take.

To test the route, put a static route in for via It also may be that is found via !

Happy hunting,

Re: eigrp routing issue

I am puzzled about something in the original post. If the issue is trying to surf the Internet then why are we looking at a route for Why are we not looking for the default route?

I am also puzzled in the original post that the route that he found is through interface serial1/0:0 and the route that he expected was also through interface serial1/0:0 but with a different next hop. I think this raises some questions about the topology. What is the address on serial1/0:0 and what is the address of the neighbor on serial1/0:0?

Perhaps Jerry can clarify these points?
