It works now :smiley: Thanks !

If it is not too much work:
What is actually changed by the the command(s) ?

And will it be persistent?

The internet should be routed via the DSL connection.
The LAN connection should be used to access hosts in the LAN network.
This resolves the routing collision with the duplicate default gateway.


Actually NM is told to NOT set a default gateway for the LAN connection. But since the connection is static, meaning you set it up manually, you should not have set a gateway for LAN in the first place :wink:

Also you should consider to ad host information for all hosts in your local network to the DNS-server at to get your local dns-resolution working.


And this was different in versions before F33 since it wasn’t a problem then?

Then you can simplify the config:

nmcli connection modify id LAN \
ipv4.gateway "" ipv4.never-default "" \
ipv6.gateway "" ipv6.never-default ""
nmcli connection up id LAN

Downstream interfaces should not configure the default gateway anyway.

Well, actually it shouldn’t be a problem now as well since the LAN route should simply be discarded due to not having a connection to the internet and the route with the next higher metric should be testen and used on success. Maybe route-validation changed either in NM or the kernel? I really don’t know for sure.

But having the configuration right in the first place always makes it easier :upside_down_face:

Think of the gateway setting as ‘use address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to reach network yyy.yyy.yyy’. If you have a direct connection, a gateway is not needed.
