ifconfig eth0 netmask broadcast
&& route add -net
&& route add default gw

or in a shell script:

ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} netmask ${NETMASK} broadcast ${BROADCAST}
[ "$ADDROUTE" ] && route add -net ${NETWORK}
[ "$GATEWAY" ]  && route add default gw ${GATEWAY}

This is the old way to do it and still works.  You need to know the ip
address along with the gate way and other addresses.
