prompt# ifconfig var0 netmask broadcast up

prompt# ifconfig `cat /etc/ifconfig.var0` up

"up" can be put in ifconfig:

prompt# cat /etc/ifconfig.var0
up netmask broadcast
prompt# ifconfig `cat /etc/ifconfig.var0`

mind the "netmask" and "up"
"up" is visable--^^

i would leave these all empty the first time. after succesfull ping..use 
this. no mygate myname defaultdomain resolv.conf before a succesfull 
ping..but/and them are not used/needed for such a succesfull ping.

allso, exact output from
ifconfig var0
netstat -r
would be handy for us to help.
