2.5 Update broke Internet connectivity
Updated from 2.4.5 to 2.5 and was without Internet for a while.
I could ping the external DNS server, but nothing else.
I found that on the 'System/Routing/Gateways' page, there was a 'LAN_10_2' that was set the the default gateway. Had the little 'globe' icon next to it. Also listed were WAN_DHCP and WAN_DHCP6.
Comparing my backup.xml file from 2.4.5 to 2.5, these WAN entries were not present before. Once I figured it was a routing issue and I switched the Default gateway to WAN_DHCP, I could connect to the Internet.
I don't even recall why the LAN_10_2 is present, it has a local gateway IP of a device that is not something that routes (it is a consumer device) and it is listed as a static route for a 10.2.0.0/16 that I don't even use.
Not sure if simply changing the default route is all that I need to do and I am unsure about this LAN_10_2 item. Are these WAN gateways supposed to be present? There were NOT present in 2.4.5 xml.
