Is there any way to choose an ISPs default gateway

Hi,

I'm having problems whereby one of my ISPs "gateways" is congested. I'm using an 877 on an ADSL line and I was wondering if there is a way to specify (on the dialer0) interface what gateway to use?

If you look at the output below you will see that after I restart the router (and it picks up a different gateway) the ping times are much improved.

Before

C:\Documents and Settings\fax.SERVER>tracert 66.249.93.99

Tracing route to ug-in-f99.google.com [66.249.93.99]

over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 6.0.0.253

2 162 ms 167 ms 155 ms lon-gs1dgw.mistral.net [217.154.130.37]

3 167 ms 175 ms 173 ms osm-g4-2.lon-gs1br.mistral.net [213.254.191.1]

4 182 ms 161 ms 154 ms osm-g4-1.lon-th1br.mistral.net [217.154.71.2]

After

c:\Documents and Settings\fax.SERVER>tracert 66.249.93.99

racing route to ug-in-f99.google.com [66.249.93.99]

ver a maximum of 30 hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 6.0.0.253

2 29 ms 26 ms 30 ms 217.154.130.48

3 40 ms 220 ms 206 ms osm-g4-2.lon-gs1br.mistral.net [213.254.191.1]

4 29 ms 28 ms 26 ms osm-g4-1.lon-th1br.mistral.net [217.154.71.2]

I have this problem too.

The tunnel default gateway is needed to let the internal firewall and router handle the routing for all decrypted IPsec packets. Today, after a Cisco IOS? EasyVPN Client connects to a Cisco IOS EasyVPN Server, there is no simple way for the client to send the tunnel traffic to the internal corporate network (other than to have the entire routing table on the IPsec gateway). In this type of implementation, the Cisco IOS routers use the default gateway to route all packets toward the Internet that do not have a more specific route. The tunnel default gateway gives customers the flexibility to control how they handle IPsec tunneled traffic
