Add the IP address to /etc/defaultrouter (create the file if it doesn't already exist).

vi /etc/defaultrouter and add the IPADDRESS of your router.


Router IP:

vi /etc/defaultrouter

reboot to test.

or ..
netstat -r     shows the current routing table

route add destination gateway
eg route add default    adds a default gateway

netstat -r will now show your 'new' default gateway.

You should also add this command to one of the /etc/rc.n directories so that is is set up after a reboot.
