Re: Gateway of last resort

IP default-gateway is used by non-routing devices like layer 2 switches. This is the same as the default gateway for a PC, and is only needed by the management interface.

IP default-network and the static 0/0 are used by routers.

Here is a great doc that explains the difference:
