      Default Gateway is defined as the Route to 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0, which is basically “everywhere else”.

      This is an example of a network with 2 routers, 2 subnets and access to the internet.

      Main Network:

      Router on address 10.0.0.254
      All PCs on this network use IP addressing in the range 10.0.0.0/24 (10.0.0.1 – 10.0.0.254).
      All PCs on this network use the Default Gateway 10.0.0.254

      Second Network:

      Router on 10.0.1.254 – Also has an external interface address of 10.0.0.253.
      All PCs on this network use IP addressing in the range 10.0.1.0/24 (10.0.1.1 – 10.0.1.254).
      All PCs on this network use the Default Gateway 10.0.1.254.

      Routes:

      On the Main Internet Router the following routes are present:


      0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ISP Provided
      10.0.1.0 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.253

      On the Internal Router the following routes are present:


      0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.0.0.254
      10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.254

      Chances are you’ll have to add a static route for the second network.

      Remember that while this covers the IP side of the network it doesn’t cover naming, but presumably you have a DNS there.

      Hope that all makes sense.
