/sbin/route -n
with the following display:
Destination        Gateway         Genmask                Flags     Metric
Ref    Use    iFace      UH        0
0        0        eth0          U           0
0        0       eth0                  U
0            0        0        lo                    UG       0
0          0        eth0

The netscape browser can now get access to the net, and I would guess I
can ping from the command line any IP address on the planet.
