    Default routing table problem

    Hello all
    after installing opensuse 11.4/kde
    route -v -n -e gives:
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
    192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
    169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
    127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
    0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0

    route -v -e

    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
    192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
    link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
    loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
    default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0



    the line destination = link-local or 169.254.0.0 are not on my laptop nor on the netgear AP to wich it is connected


    How do i delete this line from the table ?

    Default Re: routing table problem

    There's no need to worry about it. 169.254.0.0/16 is a subnet which is not public but reserved for randomly self-assigned addresses when a DHCP lease cannot be obtained. A route is established to this subnet just in case there are any machines that failed to get a DHCP lease and ended up in it.
