OK, I've not had this setup before and I can't get it
to work. I am not sure what to move or which commands
to use to investigate. I.E. I don't know how to
interpret what I see from them.

I got this from support:

I have checked the prefix routing and I dont see any issue with
networking.
You have assigned the below prefix. Please check and configure as per,

IP: 104.217.196.248/29
Gateway: 104.217.196.249
Netmask: 255.255.255.248

You can use below nameserver,

nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4
nameserver 208.87.241.170
nameserver 198.13.100.82

What is your network interface?

hostname.if(5)

/etc/mygate

I have two, em0 and em1

em0:
inet 104.217.196.248 255.255.255.248

And I admit I really don't see what IP addresses I get
with 104.217.196.248/29.
Especially confusing with 104.217.196.249 as the gateway address

That's not the IP address you're supposed to use, that's the subnet
they've allocated you.

See:

http://www.subnet-calculator.com/subnet.php

104.217.196.248 is the network address, you can't assign that to an
actual host. The usable IP addresses in that subnet are
104.217.196.249-104.217.196.254, 104.217.196.249 is your gateway, so
that leaves you 104.217.196.250-104.217.196.254 to assign to your
systems. 104.217.196.255 is the broadcast address for the subnet.

Update your hostname.em0 to use 104.217.196.250 and make sure your
/etc/mygate file contains 104.217.196.249.

You get 6 addresses from that, but one is used by the gateway. Use
104.217.196.250 to 254 for your devices.

em0:
inet 104.217.196.250 255.255.255.248 104.217.196.255

OK, I can ping the router address from windows, but not my addresses

Even after a reboot, this fails to work.
Is there something I am missing or do I need to kick this back
to support?

Thanks,

switched to em1, no problem.
em0 is clearly defective.

Thanks for the help!
