Yes it can be done. Pros are easy configuration and less devices to manage. The only Con I can think of is there will be no pre-filtering which isn't a huge deal anyway. Routing is very straightforward. Assume that your ISP is giving you a range of IP's of 192.168.1.2-5, with .1 being their device and your default gateway. The command would look like this-

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1

Hope it helps.

Hi,

Yes collin is right you can do that and check out the below sample configuration of ASA 5505  configuration with simple default routing.
