I was going to download the latest tar_files and I was trying to use the
cable modem to see what kind of speeds I get as opposed to my DSL line
which does about 16-16.8 pretty regularly.

OOpppss, I cut and pasted the -net 24 line and didn't clean it up
correctly. No -net on the ftp.netbsd.org route line.

NO!! *8^) My DSL line is the default route and it seems to work just fine
and I don't want to make the cable modem the default route since it's flaky.
(I've hooked it up to a box where it is the default route and it performs
very strangely. I mean it has other problems than this alternate interface
route problem I'm having.)

Well, as I've said, I'm obviously missing something but, I don't see what.
Routing to .202 is wrong. If I route to .193 I get nothing. No tcpdump
results on any of the interfaces.
