You need to be in the config mode. the privelege excec mode# is not the correct one.

best regards

Its unclear from my post but I am actually in config mode and the router accepts the command without any errors it just doesnt show up in the sh ip route

use this following command to to see static routes.

Router#show configuration/run

The switch needs to have ip routing enabled before that statics take place. Otherwise you will have a default-gateway.

Try entering "ip routing" on the switch - that should take care of your problem.

In addition to Charles post about making sure you have ip routing, a static route will only be entered into the routing table if the next-hop address is reachable. So does your routing table know how to get to the next hop.
