Why are you adding a route to ftp.netbsd.org? Also, why are you adding a
-net route for it? Both actions are wrong.
I think you want a much simpler routing setup than you're giving yourself.
I think all you want in addition to local routes and the loopback routes
is "route add default 184.108.40.206".
You shouldn't need to enter a route for the cable modem as the ifconfig
for the ethernet card on the cable side should have done it. I think the
220.127.116.11/27 link#3 UC 0 0 - ne0
line was all you needed.
