When in the office, I'm connected to a 192.168.1.0/24 network. When Internet Sharing is off, when I run
the first entry shows
default 192.168.1.254 UGSc 10 62 en0
If I turn Internet sharing on, it shows
default link#5 UCS 2 0 en1
This is obviously incorrect and breaks all connectivity of my machine.
en1 is my wireless, whereas en0 is my Ethernet. If I then disable Internet Sharing, it even deletes that incorrect route, so I'm left with no default route at all.
Currently I have one script that I run when I share, or after, when I disable that does
route delete default route add default 192.168.1.254
That fixes everything, but I'd love to know what's actually making this happen and how to properly fix it.
And just to say that at some point a few months ago, this was working absolutely perfectly, with no hitches, then one day when I brought the laptop home, I couldn't disable the internet sharing, so I couldn't connect to my home WIFI. I eventually had to restart the machine and since then this problem has been happening.
