Routing Table
Routing Table
The table below shows IPv4 and IPv6 routing information. The IPv4 subnet mask is ‘’ for a host destination and ‘’ for the default route. The gateway address is written as ‘*’(IPv4)/‘::’(IPv6) if none is set.

IPv4 / IPv6 Routing Table
This indicates the destination IPv4 address or IPv6 address and prefix of this route.
This indicates the IPv4 address or IPv6 address of the gateway that helps forward this route’s traffic.
Subnet Mask
This indicates the destination subnet mask of the IPv4 route.
This indicates the route status.
U–Up: The route is up.
!–Reject: The route is blocked and will force a route lookup to fail.
G–Gateway: The route uses a gateway to forward traffic.
H–Host: The target of the route is a host.
R–Reinstate: The route is reinstated for dynamic routing.
D–Dynamic (redirect): The route is dynamically installed by a routing daemon or redirect.
M–Modified (redirect): The route is modified from a routing daemon or redirect.
The metric represents the "cost of transmission." A router determines the best route for transmission by choosing a path with the lowest "cost." The smaller the number, the lower the "cost."
This indicates the name of the interface through which the route is forwarded.
brx indicates a LAN interface where x can be 0 – 3 to represent LAN1 to LAN4 respectively.
ptm0 indicates a VDSL (including WAN interface using IPoE or in bridge mode.
ethx indicates an Ethernet WAN interface using IPoE or in bridge mode.
ppp0 indicates a WAN interface using PPPoE.
wlx indicates a wireless interface where x can be 0 – 1.
