Stefan,
I checked the routingtable and therewas something strange about it.
I had configured Routing with YAST2. and specified a netmask: 0.0.0.0.
But this resulted in the routing table as shown below (netmask 255.255.255.255):
dagobert:/home/Bert # netstat -rn
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
0.0.0.0 192.168.43.10 255.255.255.255 UGH 0 0 0 eth1
192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
0.0.0.0 192.168.43.10 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
--------------------------------

In fact it did not matter if I filled-in 0.0.0.0 or 255.255.255.255, it gave the same result in the routing table with netstat. I think this is a bug in YAST2 ?/!

So I deleted the Default-GW cfg for eth1 in YAST2:
dagobert:/home/Bert # netstat -rn
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
0.0.0.0 192.168.43.10 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
--------------------------------

.... and put it in via the netstat cmd, as you mentionned.
dagobert:/home/Bert # route add default gw 192.168.43.10 dev eth1
--------------------------------

This resulted in the following routing table:
dagobert:/home/Bert # netstat -rn
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.43.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
0.0.0.0 192.168.43.10 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1
0.0.0.0 192.168.43.10 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
--------------------------------
And this looks good.
But when I try to ping the DGW, it does not answer.
dagobert:/home/Bert # ping 192.168.43.10
PING 192.168.43.10 (192.168.43.10) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.43.61: icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable
From 192.168.43.61 icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable

Hopefully you have any idees?
Regards, Bert
