When booting up, system waits at SIOCADDRT, Network not reachable...

I get this error/prompt everytime my OS/2 system boots up.  My Peer network with Win95 is working fine once it boots up.  I have to push the enter key to have the boot process continue.  It is more bothersome than anything.  How do I make it stop doing this?

This has happened to me when I have TCP/IP setup and it points to a default router that is not on the same subnet.  Check in your config.sys for a statement similar to the following :

call=c:\os2\cmd.exe /q /c c:\mptn\bin\mptstart.cmd > nul

If it is there, then check mptn\bin\mptstart.cmd, it should be calling a command called mptn\bin\setup.cmd

mptn\bin\setup.cmd contains the ifconfig commands for your NIC and sets up your default router IP.  If your default router IP is not on the same subnet as you are, you will get the error message you indicated above.  To solve this in the past, I have done the following:

Cut and paste the 'route add ....' lines from mptn\bin\setup.cmd into startup.cmd.  This will, in effect, allow you to 'clean boot' your machine and not have to be there to press 'enter' every time.

I wasn't sure if you meant Startup.cmd in root directory or some other startup.cmd or setup.cmd.  Might just be my own Ignorance.
