I usually blog for myself, so I don’t forget stuff when I need them :P

I’m usually connected via WiFi to a network, however, FreeBSD’s WiFi drivers are not very… good. I mean they do work and do essential stuff, but it’s slow :) anyways.

That’s why I’m always connected to the network using a wire as well.

The problem that I always encounter and want to solve is to change the default route’s interface after wiring up :)

Here’s how you can do that.

# netstat -4rn | grep default
default            10.10.200.254      UGS       wlan0
# route change default 10.10.200.254 -ifp em0
change net default: gateway 10.10.200.254 fib 0
# netstat -4rn | grep default
default            10.10.200.254      UGS         em0

and so on…
