DG834 routing table metrics

Just looking at my router's routing table... the metric for all routes is 0...

Now to my mind that's not a valid metric for every route.... (actually I would debate whether 0 is a valid metric for any valid reachable route other than internal routes).


Anyone any ideas?

(It works so just curious as to what's going on)

If you think about it it only has one option to route via the adsl port so everything is 0
Its not like a cisco router which could have several ports to route via

Ah, but the interface metric for each interface (ppp0, br0) is showing as 1, so the minimum routing cost is 1 based on the fact it has to transit an interface which has a cost of 1.

Directly connected interface is 0 (zero) and static route would be 1, where the lowest value is the more trusted route. Cheesy
