after some talking I decided to try again and post a specific thread for
I noticed that when I change IP address for the same wireless card
(since I am moving to a different subnet I need a new IP), the actual
change in the kernel happens between 300 to 500 ms later. In particular,
after changing the IP (ip route add...) and updating route table and
default gw, the actual data packets are sent using the new IP only after
300 to 500 ms after setting all the above.
Does anyone of you know what this could be related to? Or, does anyone
of you know where in the kernel code I could start looking for some answers?
I have already had some feedback with suggestions to look into the
route_cache, however this does not seem to me as a route problem but
more as a socket problem and perhaps some kind of timer that is set to
refresh the socket info in the kernel.
Any help would be really appreciated.
