Hi Ajay

The ip address you configure on the LAN interface mostly on the ethernet which connects to your local network will be the same as your default gateway set in the network properties..


Jon Marshall Sun, 04/29/2007 - 22:58


You could mean one of 2 things.

1) You have configured an interface on the router for a subnet eg.


subnet mask

router interface

Any clients you attach to this subnet should have their defautl gateway in network properties set to

2) You have configured a default route on the router eg "next-hop ip address"

If this is the case this would not be the same as the default gateway on the pc.

HI Ajay, [Pls Rate if Helps]

Please let us know about your network.

PC Address Allocation:


IP Address:

Subnet Mask:

Default Gateway:-->IP Address of Core Switch

Core Switch-->Static Route to-->Router

Router--->Static Router-->ISP


PC Address Allocation:


IP Address:

Subnet Mask:

Default Gateway:-->IP Address of Router Interface [belongs / Conencted to LAN Subnet]

Router--->Static Router-->ISP

Pls Rate If Helps ! !

Best Regards,

Guru Prasad R

Hi Ajay,

IP address of the ethernet interface will be the gateway IP address for the clients in the LAN.

hope this helps.

rate this post if satisfied.

Your question is not clear. Most of the time when we talk about configuring default gateway on a router we are talking about configuring a default route on the router. I am not sure if this is what you are talking about or not. The default route configured on a router is not propagated to the end stations as their default gateway.

It is possible to configure DHCP on a router and in configuring DHCP it is possible to configure a gateway address (usually the interface address of the router) which will be propagated to the end station and which will be the gateway address in network properties. I am not clear whether this is what you are talking about.

If this does not answer your question then perhaps you can clarify.
